Space for the community to gather, grow, share and learn.

The garden first had a small provincial garden full of natives (developed in 2010) and now has grown into a huge community garden which has a hothouse, many raised garden beds, heaps of fruit and berry trees, 6 private plots, 4 school plots, a wood-fired pizza oven, and a food co-op. Our current projects include:

  • a grow and learn program in partnership with the local primary school
  • market stall once a month with the local market where we not only sell produce but offer pizza for sale (which is a great fundraiser)
  • hold a ‘Soiree’ at the beginning of each season (monthly in summer) which involves music from local musicians, selling pizzas, selling homemade rhubarb champagne, and celebrating the garden
  • monthly working bees
  • workshops in the school holidays.

Overall aims:

  • care for the soil, and for biodiversity are at the heart of the organic practice used within the garden
  • waste minimization and nutrient cycling, water efficiency, permaculture principles, and design techniques
  • the philosophy of the garden is that we treat each other with dignity and respect.

I love to garden and share the joy of food growing with others. Community gardens are great places to meet like-minded people who care for the earth and have a love of the natural world. I express this through teaching permaculture, both locally and overseas through school programs, TAFE, university and community workshops. We are living in interesting times and the time to start growing your own food is now. Our health, and the health of the planet benefits through local food growing systems by creating local resilient communities.
