​​​​Ever wanted to grow your own fruit and veggies but don't have the space? Want to get to know other keen green thumbs? Then community gardening is for you! 

Community gardens are a place for gardeners of all ages and experience levels to meet and share in the benefits of growing fresh, local and organic produce. It's also a great way to bond and come together!


Local can learn about all aspects of gardening from soil preparation to harvesting. Water-wise gardening is our speciality! Gardening is not only recreational but also good for the environment, too. It helps to minimise waste, by allowing residents to compost and reuse materials that may have been discarded.
