Important message: As of 2018, Conservation Volunteers Australia manage the Community Gardens area and are helping to keep it running into the future. For more information about how to get involved, click here.
Community gardens covering 0.3 hectares were established in 1998 to encourage more visitors to City Farm and to give them a greater awareness and appreciation of the surrounding wetlands.
Built largely by volunteers, the gardens have provided a stimulating and safe work environment, where social interaction and friendly, stress free atmosphere are as important as the production of healthy, chemical-free food.
Volunteers have always played a large role in making things happen in the Community Gardens.
