Our weekly gardening group provides opportunities for local people to come together and learn and share gardening skills at our Louis Street Community Garden.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to grow fruit and vegetables as well as herbs of all kinds. Everyone is welcome in the community to use our gardens whether its to come and browse or to even have your lunch on our communal benches.

Our gardening group meets every Wednesday from 10.30am-12.30pm come rain or shine – just drop in.

If you have any groups/volunteers who would like to take a proactive role in gardening  then come along and join in the fun! You get to take a whole variety of organic fruit, veg and herbs to enhance your cooking.

Some of the things that we have grown in our garden include apples, cabbage, pumpkins, tomatoes, garlic and even hot chillies. Our herb range include, coriander, oregano, mint, thyme, chives, rosemary and lemongrass. Anybody can come an use our garden and what we grow. We have a lovely bench area should you want to have your lunch or a quiet read.

Workshop activities depending on the season include; growing fruit trees and bushes, containers and raised beds, wildlife gardening; growing vegetables, preserving jams and chutneys and basic garden design.
