A supportive Kingborough Council supplied the land in 2007.

The planning and much of the work of establishment of the garden was done by local organic gardening guru, David Stephen.

The garden consists of 50 family or group plots of about 4 square metres each. These include the Possums Playgroup and Home Educators. There are also 4 communal beds with a rotational system, and other ‘community’ areas including fruit trees, worm farms, and composting bays around the perimeter fence.

There is a herb garden on the garden frontage. We aim to be an organic garden. We have regular working bees and events.

Taroona does not have a shopping centre so the garden is a social focus for the community.

Always open.

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.
