Please Note: A number of our programs have been postponed due to physical distancing requirements and Covid-19. We hope to have our programs back up and running as soon as possible. Please feel free to get in touch for more information.

We are helping to establish a community garden in the park next door to us (Robinson Reserve).

Our community garden is a fantastic asset to Reynard Street Neighbourhood House. It serves the purpose of increasing access to fresh nutritious foods and provides an opportunity to educate children and adults about growing food from the source.

Growing vegetables locally from seed reduces “food miles” and also cuts out some of the environmental damage of excessively packaged and processed foods. We recycle waste from our community lunches to create compost and feed our worm farms, which in turn fertilise the vegetable beds.

The garden is a fun, interactive space where you can get your hands dirty learning horticulture skills or feel free to pick some herbs on your way home for dinner tonight!
