Community gardening

Whether you are an experienced gardener or absolute beginner, everyone is welcome to join our gardening groups.

  • Share gardening skills, tips and tricks
  • Meet new people
  • Grow fresh food to share.

Ways that you can be involved:

  • Attend gardening sessions and get your hands dirty planting, propagating, weeding, composting
  • Donate items to the garden e.g. cuttings or seeds collected from your home garden, food waste for compost
  • Create artwork for the garden in class, e.g. mosaics, pottery
  • Share gardening knowledge/skills with the group
  • A ‘food swap’ - bring things from your home garden to swap with others
  • Once we are ready to harvest a crop, have a community lunch.

We have two community garden sites at:

- Eltham Neighbourhood House - 739 Main Road.

- Panton Hill Neighbourhood House - 18 Bishops Road.

You can join at any time. It's free - we just need you to register once.
