Community Gardens

What is a community garden?

A community garden is a single piece of land gardened collectively by a group of people. 

Community gardens are places for people to plant, grow and tend to fruit and vegetables. Individual plots are available for a small annual membership fee, and some gardens have shared plots for groups.

Community gardens improve users’ health through increased fresh vegetable consumption and the gentle exercise from gardening.

Community gardens also bring people closer to the source of their food, create a social environment and a sense of belonging.

Community gardens also provide other benefits such as, sharing the knowledge of food production with the wider community.

Warrnambool Community Garden

The Warrnambool Community Garden has become a popular gathering place for many different people. Established in 2007, the garden features two acres of land and is located on the corner of Grieve Street and Grafton Road.

A group of members tend to the communal garden beds and surrounds on a regular basis. All year round the garden is a delightful place to be, filled with vibrant colours and a variety of plant life. Engage with the fresh air and natural environment by dropping by and seeing for yourself. If you’d like to get involved come along on Tuesday mornings between 10am - 11am. WCG has open days from time to time. Visit the website for more information.
