Ballina Community Garden

Get involved

Our garden includes communal garden plots, rental garden plots, raised garden beds, clubhouse, tool shed, shade house, chickens, 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 you please.  Produce grown in the community plots is shared during working bees.  Working bees are held on Tuesday and Sunday mornings 9am-12pm.

    Hello,
    Could I please get some information on accessing the community garden. We support our people with inclusion in their local community. We are looking to find a community garden where our people can come along, do a bit of work and be able to take home some produce, preferably for free to have for dinner that night.

    I’ll be on leave for 2 weeks from this afternoon, but I’m really keen to hear back from you.

    Many thanks.

      Hi Kate,

      Great to hear from you. We are keen to start making connections with local services such as BDCSA/FSG, so your making contact is timely.
      There is a couple of options that we could consider so please give me a call when you return from leave so we can discuss. My mobile number is 0400 148 692.

      Kind regards,

      Simon Scott
