Our community garden
The South Hobart community garden is at 106 Cascade Road (at the top of the carpark opposite the Southern Tasmanian Badminton Association); everyone is welcome. We hold a monthly working bee, typically on the second Saturday of the month, from 2-4pm (except where it falls on a long weekend, then it falls on the third Saturday). View more about our community garden.
South Hobart Food Growers Group
A monthly garden gathering of food growers, who share knowledge, skills, seeds/seedlings/cuttings, excess produce, laughter and delicious food. No experience necessary, arrangements vary to comply with Covid restrictions and members’ concerns. If you would like to be included on our group email list please contact Alison or Clare: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
As an outcome from the 2030 Community Vision meeting, a number of working groups have formed.
