Community Garden

Our community garden is a volunteer-run garden that provides community members with a friendly environment to grow plants, learn and improve their gardening knowledge and skills, and make new friends.

The garden is a productive fruit and vegetable garden, all the produce is made available to community members and groups that use our centre.

See a variety of different waste management systems in action, with worm farms, bokashi and in-ground composting all in use at our community garden.

New in the garden

We are excited to initiate our propagation system with a new greenhouse. This will provide plants for the community, our food forest program, BGCS and Banksia Gardens Housing Estate Community Gardens.

If you don’t feel comfortable with this, we might find other opportunities in the design stages, so please submit an expression of interest in this link:
