Green Corner Community Garden
The Ashgrove Green Corner originally started as a community development project undertaken by local organisations to establish a multifaceted amenity for broad community use.
The original aim for the garden was to provide a meeting place for those isolated in the community to come together and enjoy purposeful productive activities in a welcoming environment.
Green Corner is located on the corner of Waterworks Road and Jubilee Terrace Ashgrove, on a portion of unused land owned by the Department of Main Roads.
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.
Kelvin Grove Community Garden
Kelvin Grove Community Garden is a beautiful and thriving flower, herb and vegetable garden located in Kundu Park, Kelvin Grove.
The Garden brings together local residents from a great diversity of backgrounds and celebrates the community spirit of the Kelvin Grove Urban Village.
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 gardener who will participate in working bees and regularly tend your plot. Being a part of Kelvin Grove Community Garden is a wonderful opportunity to join a friendly and welcoming community group and to enjoy a full and fun calendar of social events.
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.
