Notes (in their own words):

This garden is open to the public.

There are six wicking garden beds plus a compost station with three large bins. There are plans to expand the garden to include some fruit trees.

The garden had previously fallen into disuse but since April 2019 has been under the care of small group of volunteers whose aim is to provide a space for locals to connect and learn through the process of growing food, as well as sharing the resulting harvest with the community.

The produce from the beds is free for everyone to harvest, promoting the concepts of a sharing economy, and the use of communal land for the production of fresh, local food.

The beds are managed according to organic principles and where possible utilise recycled or re-purposed materials. The compost program aims to capture organic waste from the adjacent Community Hub and from local community and business, keeping waste out of landfill and providing compost to sustain the garden.

Volunteers generally meet on the fourth Thursday of the month at 9.30am to plan or carry out work in the garden. Anyone is welcome to attend and no ongoing commitment to the garden is required.
