What's on

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.

Growers gatherings

The Food Growers Group organises a monthly Growers’ Gathering for those interested in growing food in their gardens; everyone is welcome. We meet at a host's garden and tour the garden with questions and casual information exchange. Participants bring and swap their excess produce, seeds, seedlings and plants. If you would like to be included on our group email list please contact Alison or Clare: alicen@internode.on.net or drclareroberts@gmail.com

South Hobart Bushcare groups

There are four active groups in South Hobart:

  • Hobart Rivulet (encouraging healthy habitat for our iconic platypus)
    Second Sunday of the month, 2 - 4.30 pm.

  • Jubilee Road (removing gorse and other weeds from bushland in upper South Hobart)
    Four times per year, contact Hannah via hannah_clark @ hotmail.com (use no spaces when typing in).

  • Trackcare (build and look after bushland tracks on kunanyi/Mount Wellington)
    Third Sunday of the month, 10 am - 3 pm.

  • Wellesley Park (bushland remnant of rare black peppermint forest)
    Third Sunday of the month, 10 am - 12.30 pm.

The City of Hobart Bushcare program requires volunteers to register, and is a great way to enhance the bushland values of our community, which harbours many nationally threatened fauna, such as the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, Grey Goshawk, Tasmanian Devils and Wedge-tailed Eagles.
