COMMUNITY
GARDEN

We are surrounded by beautiful gardens for our community to enjoy. Our native garden includes a dry creek bed and rocks for exploring, a majestic gum (home to many local birds), lots of garden seating and accessible walkways for our community to enjoy all year round. We have raised wicking beds growing a range of herbs and vegetables, from which the community are welcome to help themselves. Our cottage garden is a pretty and relaxing space surrounded by roses and flowers and is a perfect spot to have a cuppa. Our community gardens are wonderful spaces to gather, share and learn and volunteers are always welcome to assist in the maintenance of the garden.
