The City supports multiple local community gardens which are managed by community volunteers. Each garden is different; however, they typically contain a mix of garden beds for rent and communal garden beds for sharing. Some of the gardens also run events and workshops for garden members and the local community.
Joondanna community garden
A vibrant and interactive hub for the local area focused on organic gardening. Individual plots can be leased, and members are also encouraged to look after communal areas. Members of all backgrounds, ages and ability levels are welcome.
Location: Corner of Wade Street and Stoneham Street, Joondanna
