What is a community garden?
Community gardens are places for people to plant, grow and tend to fruit and vegetables. They are also nice places to simply 'be.' Community gardens provide people with a sense of belonging and can improve physical and emotional wellbeing through the satisfaction of watching fresh produce flourish with their labour.
Warrnambool Community Garden
The Warrnambool Community Garden has become a popular gathering place for people of all backgrounds. First conceived in 2005, the project finally became a reality in 2007. Situated on the corner of Grieve Street and Grafton Road, the garden features two acres of land and garden beds.
A group of members and the WDEA Round-up Cirew tend to the shared garden beds and surrounds on a regular basis. Tuesday mornings between 10am - 11am is a good time to come along and see if you'd like to become a member and get involved . At all times of the year the garden is a delightful place to be, so drop by and see for yourself.
