Community Garden Week

Grow your community spirit during Community Garden Week

To celebrate Community Garden Week, several Central Coast Community Gardens are opening their gates and inviting everyone to come along to the events running 7 to 15 September 2019.

The open day events provide a great opportunity for the whole family to come along to see what’s over the back fence and explore their local Community Garden.  The program also includes workshops and demonstrations, plant sales, morning teas so you can ‘have-a-cuppa’ with your local Community Garden Group members and find out how to get involved.

Mayor Jane Smith says Council proudly support community gardens and provide 14 parcels of land on the Coast to enable these valued spaces that promote active and connected lifestyles for our community.

“Community gardens provide inclusive and welcoming places for residents of all ages and abilities – they are places to socialise and meet new people, be active in the fresh air whilst learning new skills and growing your own organic produce. They also provide the perfect place for people that want to garden but don’t have the time, space or resources at home.

“Community Garden Groups are made up of committed and enthusiastic residents that provide an appreciated voluntary service in managing and maintaining each garden and demonstrate our community spirit,” Mayor Smith said.

“I encourage everyone to come along and discover their local Community Garden and what’s on offer!’
