The Miranda Community Garden was started in early 2010 on a block of land adjacent to and owned by the Gymea Miranda Uniting Church.
The aims of the Miranda Community Garden (MCG) are:
- to connect with people of similar interests;
- to share gardening knowledge and ideas;
- to have fun and help each other; and, last but not least,
- to grow fresh vegetables, fruit, etc in a sustainable way.
The concept is for the Community Garden to be a place where members share gardening, maintenance, and produce. Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate.
At present we have about 30 enthusiastic members, the majority from outside the church congregation.
To date over 30 garden beds are in operation together with some waist-high beds. We continue to harvest lots of vegetables to date including beans, spinach, potatoes, corn, tomatoes, and lots more. Also, we have installed rainwater tanks, an irrigation system, garden edging, paths, and multiple compost bins.
Gardening takes place every Wednesday and Saturday morning commencing after about 9 am.
