Community Gardens

What are community gardens?

Community Gardens are a formal form of community gardening, where people access their own plots, or share communal plots. Community gardens are community-run, not-for-profit, may be membership-based, and can be located on council or private land.

Community gardens can be a valuable recreational, social and educational resource for the community of the City of Charles Sturt. As well as providing residents with the opportunity to grow their own food, community gardens contribute to the ecological sustainability and food security of their neighbourhood. They offer a space for fellow gardeners to get together and share the joy and skill of gardening with the community.
