Within the historic precinct of St Luke’s Church and under aged gum trees is a beautiful community garden – a place to relax and enjoy some time out.
It has been designed as a demonstration site for organic, sustainable urban living. It provides a unique place for community gathers and a quiet sanctuary for those wishing to grow vegetables or simply enjoy the verdant space.
The Community Garden includes 27 raised beds that are allocated to local people to grow a variety of vegetables and flowers for themselves and their family. The rest of the garden has been planted out with a selection of native plants, a small orchard, a communal herb garden and seasonal crops. These sections are for all garden members and visitors to enjoy.
Our members have a wealth of knowledge on vegetable growing, companion planting, organic practices, composting, soil improvement and native plants. Busy bees, informative talks and social events are regularly held in the garden. We would love to hear from you if you are interested in joining or just visiting.
The Community Garden is open to anyone who would like to become a member. We have two types of membership:
You have a raised garden bed, access to communal produce and are expected to do 12 hours work per year in the Garden
Access to the garden and communal produce but no work requirements
