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!
Lettuce invite you to join us in the garden.
There is so mushroom.
Weed it and reap the benefits.
Drop the beet and turnip the heat.
The thyme is now!
Don’t beet around the bush and become a Green Grub now.
Little to no experience with gardening is welcome.
Learn by getting your hands dirty in our community garden.
