Community Garden

Join the gardeners
We would love to have you join us, either as a regular or on a drop in basis.
Want to get involved? Call Bobby Babin on 0415 499 400 for a no obligation conversation.

There are several ways you can get involved.

You can participate in the gardening mornings, starting 8 am on Saturdays, as notified by Bobby. Experienced gardeners and novices welcome. Children (supervised by parents or guardians) welcome. Free morning tea provided.

You can take part in the watering roster. All the volunteers are scheduled on a rotating basis to water the entire garden once a fortnight.  Each watering session takes approximately 1 hour.

Annual membership fees are $30 per household.

Our diverse membership includes men, women, boys and girls of all ages, shapes, sizes, ethnicities and religions. We have experienced gardeners and first-timers. Everyone has their own expertise; so we tend to educate each other … not only on gardening issues, but also on life lessons, such as how to work together and how to value each person’s contributions and ideas, no matter how different they may be from our own. Every participant’s life has been enriched as a result.

For some people, the community garden serves as a symbol of God’s creative, life-giving, fruitful activity and an expression of our value of caring for creation. For others, it’s simply a welcome oasis of peace and beauty. Everyone is invited to enjoy it.
