Our Community Garden is up and growing and there are a lifetime of opportunities to explore.

At present it’s an experiment of different ideas, to see what grows best where.

Community food growing is about learning forgotten skills, sharing knowledge and experiences, exploring new techniques and celebrating the success of harvest, but it’s also about much more.

Members are experimenting with four bales of rice straw put together, spreading blood and bone over the top and watering daily for 14 days. If you would like to know more come along to a working bee.

Members are gathering at the gardens each Wednesday afternoon at 1.30pm and Saturday morning at 9.30am.

Come along and join in this exciting new venture.

Application forms with membership charter and code of conduct are available on these days.

Joining fee is $5 per annum which go toward garden costs.
