Community Garden wins grant funding for shelter!!

We’ve been granted over $10,000 from the Commonwealth Government under the Stronger Communities Program to construct a shelter, seating and accessible garden. This will be developed in the space at the rear of the garden, on the kunanyi/Mt Wellington side of the garden.

We have got big plans for our little patch but we always welcome new ideas, so let us know your veggie visions (or if you've got energy to help with the construction!) with a quick email to
