About us


We are creating a beautiful and sustainable garden that provides healthy produce through community activity.

What’s important to us is:

  • Growing local food
  • Reducing food miles
  • Minimising water and energy use
  • Organic permaculture and biodynamic principals
  • Recycling water and waste
  • Enjoying ourselves!!

    Apart from feeling really good about helping our environment,
    members also get to:

  • Take home beautiful produce after gardening sessions
  • Go on holidays without worrying who is going to water the veggie patch
  • Make the odd new friend – the odder the better!
  • Learn new things
  • Have a lot of fun in the process

    What we do includes a whole range of activities, no matter
    what your abilities:

  • Light work, eg., standing up while watering or harvesting
  • Carpentry projects – building sheds, shades and other infrastructure
  • Irrigation and Plumbing projects – plants need water
  • Digging, wheelbarrowing, weeding, other heavy duty exercise – who needs a gym?
  • Fund raising – easy stuff like garage sales, raffles, produce sales, plus putting on the occasional event
  • Communications
  • Socialising – lots of BYO morning and afternoon teas after work, BBQs, picnics
