Sydney Community gardens

The City currently has 13 community gardens which are run by the community and used for growing herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruit and for conserving rare plants and seeds.

Most gardens:
• Offer the chance to reduce your household waste by using communal composting systems
• Demonstrate innovative and practical ways to reuse pre-loved materials
• Allow you to learn hands-on gardening and grow your own fresh, organic food
• Are a great place to meet other people and get involved in your local area.
