Community gardens

Want to be part of a community gardening project?  Community gardens are a great way for residents without their own garden, or those who want to be part of a community gardening project to get out and use their green thumb.

If you would like to grow your own vegetables, fruits, herbs or flowers, and want to get outdoors and interact with like minded green thumbs, the community gardens may be for you.

The Joan Park Community Garden has been operating for over 10 years, Peachey Community Garden for almost 2 years and Council are currently establishing gardens at Varsity Lakes and Southport as pilot projects for a citywide program.
