Coal Loader Cottage Community Garden

2 Balls Head Drive Waverton NSW 2060

The Coal Loader Cottage Community Garden group meets Wednesday 9.30am till 12 noon.

Residents are welcome to join-in during these hours.

Being an organic communal garden without individual garden plots, everything harvested is shared among the participants at the weekly meeting.

Outside of that, there are weekend rosters for watering the garden and for chook keeping.

The garden is open for viewing any day of the week.

History
The Coal Loader Cottage Community Garden is set in a former Coal Loader industrial site where coal was delivered, stockpiled and transferred to passenger and cargo ships until the early 1990s. The site is now The Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability which includes the Coal Loader Platform, community gardens, Community Native Nursery and many other interesting facilities.

The garden was conceived in 2005 when Council invited the local community to participate in the planning and design of the area.

Enthusiastic residents have followed environmentally sustainable principles and have been gardening, learning, laughing and enjoying the garden’s harvest through the seasons since 2007!
