Welcome to the exciting, diverse and dynamic world of

Western Australia’s community gardens.

 

“Community gardens are places where people come together to grow food and community”1. These outdoor environments nurture community connectedness, outdoor learning and sharing of skills to grow stronger communities. Community gardens provide productive, high quality, creative and  accessible open spaces in local communities and deliver a range of benefits in physical and nutritional health, mental health and wellbeing, environmental sustainability, food security, social inclusion, education and training, economic development, cultural vitality and community resilience.

 

More and more communities and organisations across Western Australia are recognising the enormous potential for community gardens to be sustainable venues for local community development. Whatever your interests or expertise, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in this energetic and innovative sector.

 

Just as community gardens bring people together and encourage the sharing of ideas and skills, this website aims to connect individuals, organisations and groups interested in gardens and to share information and inspiration to support the development of vibrant and viable community gardens across Western Australia.
