In 2011, the Food Growers subgroup recieved some funding to establish a Community Orchard in South Hobart. The idea behind establishing the orchard was to create a welcoming community space where people could picnic, socialise, hold workshops (ie pruning, grafting, composting) and become familiar with some fruit and nut varieties which grow well in the South Hobart area.  We have been in discussions with Hobart City Council about possible locations for the orchard for some time and are currently in discussion over possible sites within Wellesley Park.

We are also talking with council about the possibility of establishing a community garden in the grassy area above the Badminton Centre Carpark.  Please let us know if you are interested in helping with either of these initiatives.

The survery has been CLOSED.  If you are interested in being involved, please email
