We are involved with four local community gardens around Brisbane. We’re thrilled to be a part of this vibrant, environmentally-focused, grass-roots movement.
Our four gardens are The Green Corner, at Ashgrove, the Kelvin Grove Community Garden in the KG Urban Village, The Brook Community Garden at Mitchelton, and Chapel Hill Community Garden.
Green Corner Community Garden
Green Corner is located on land owned by the Department of Main Roads at the corner of Waterworks Rd and Jubilee Tce Ashgrove.
This community garden provides a rare space in the inner city for people to come together to grow edible plants, to learn skills, build friendships and to experience the joy that gardening together can bring.
Garden members usually have their own plot to tend and share the work of maintaining the communal areas, creating energy rich compost and will also come together for social catch ups. Together, garden members will plan working bees and will work closely with Communify staff on identifying projects and priorities.

Green Corner is grateful to have had many of its projects supported through Brisbane City Council’s grants programs.
Kelvin Grove Community Garden
A beautiful and thriving flower, herb and vegetable garden located in Kundu Park, Blamey St Kelvin Grove.
This community garden brings together local residents from a great diversity of backgrounds and celebrates the community spirit of the Kelvin Grove Urban Village. The community garden also hosts a composting hub. Locals bring vegetable scraps that make wonderful compost and in turn feed our gardens and save landfill.
Kelvin Grove Community Garden is always interested to hear from new gardeners who would like to participate. The garden is divided into individual plots of 3 sq.m ($25 per annum) and 2 sq.m ($15 per annum). Fees include everything you need except for the plants, which are yours to choose. The garden also has a community composting system and a worm farm.
To join the garden you will need to be a committed (but not necessarily experienced) gardener who will participate in working bees and regularly tend your plot. Members enjoy coming together to experience the joy of gardening as well as the occasional social get together in the park.
Even if you don’t want the commitment of a garden plot there are always opportunities to help in common garden areas, grow a few flowers or pick some herbs.
Kelvin Grove Community Garden is proudly supported by Brisbane City Council.
Visit us at Kundu Park, access via Blamey Street or Hartopp Lane.
Chapel Hill Community Garden
Established in 2020, this brand new community garden is located at Green Hill Reservoir (Russell Tce Chapel Hill) on the site of the home of the former Reservoir caretaker’s house.
With the support of Brisbane City Council the garden space has been levelled and raised garden beds have been installed and planting is underway! There are plans in place to expand the garden and for a shed and picnic table. New members are welcome to join planning meetings, working bees and to stay in touch with what’s happening by checking out the Facebook page or by joining the Facebook Group. You can download the group’s working bee and meeting plans here
The Brook Community Garden
Established in 2017 this lovely community garden is located at the former pony club along Kedron Brook, at 171 McConaghy St, Mitchelton. The space is shared with Valleys Cricket Club and is fortunate to have a club house and sheds.
The garden hosts a Brisbane City Council Composting Hub and holds regular working bees that everyone is welcome to join. The garden boasts a club house where meetings, planning and special garden knowledge is shared over cups of tea.
Garden members will also hold workshops in native bee keeping, craft and gardening. Stay in touch with what’s on by following their Facebook page
