Community Gardens

Community Gardens are a great way for the community to come together to grow fruit and vegetables.

Council supports community gardens where local residents can grow herbs, vegetables and fruit. You can make new friends, learn new skills and save money.

The Eco Garden is available all year round. Discover, learn and be inspired as you wonder around or come along to a workshop throughout the year.
