Get involved

Our garden includes communal garden plots, rental garden plots, raised garden beds, a clubhouse, a tool shed, a shade house, chickens, bees, a worm farm, fruit and nut orchard.

New members and visitors are always welcome!  Rental plot holders are given the combination to the main gate to come and go as they please.  Produce grown in the community plots is shared during working bees.  Working bees are held on Wednesday and Sunday mornings 9-11.30am
