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!
Join this gardening group with a focus on inclusion, relaxation and making friends in the community garden space. The group will break to share community lunch together at 12.30pm. No experience necessary. Participants to wear closed in shoes and sun protection. Please contact us with additional access requirements so we can ensure you are comfortable.
