Getting involved in community gardens is a splendid way to learn about gardening – by doing it! It’s also great to share the gardening and ideas with others and have chats with about growing woes and delights. All hands are always welcome at any of the gardens listed below.
Rooftop Medicinal Herb Garden
Gifted to us in a lovely act of goodwill, the garden atop the Lena Karmel Unilodge was our first garden bed, growing a variety of edibles. This season, it’s going to be transformed into a medicinal herb bed, with a magnificent view over Black Mountain! Working Bees will be held every Saturday, but haven’t started as yet (April 2013). Get on our mailing list to stay informed. Located at 26 Barry Drive, Canberra on the 5th floor – you can’t get in without a pass, so best to go up with a DB person. We’re on the hunt for herbs to put in, so if you have suggestions/ideas or some to donate, give us a yell.
The SLC at the ANU has been going strong for over 5 years, growing fruit and veggies and sharing produce with anyone who comes along to lend a hand. They also often have delicious wood-fired pizza events. Working bees are every Tuesday 4-6pm and Saturday 10am-12 noon at Lennox Crossing.
