If you are looking for a community garden in Brisbane, we’ve got the list right here!

There is nothing more satisfying than growing your own food garden. Unfortunately, in this day and age not many people have the space to maintain such a garden. So is it possible to grow fresh vegetables in the middle of the bustling suburbs or in the heart of the city? As a matter of fact, community gardens growing food can be found all around Brisbane thanks to the support of local communities and organisations.

So what exactly is a community garden? Community gardens are local areas, such as parks, universities and schools, which contain specially allocated spaces to grow and maintain gardens. These gardens can include veggies, fruits, herbs and in some cases even animals. As the name implies, the maintenance of these gardens is done exclusively by locals and local organisations. Any produce grown belongs to them to either sell, use themselves, or to donate to the disadvantaged.

Community gardens provide many benefits to both individuals and the wider community. These benefits include community bonding, financial opportunities through selling produce in local farmer markets and sustainable living solutions and education. Community gardens also provides a fun and social way for families to discover gardening and get involved in their local community.

Do you and your family want to get involved with a community garden?

Community gardens are always welcoming new members every day.

More information to help you find a community garden

Please click here for more information about each of the community gardens. As a reminder, some community gardens give members their own plots whereas others maintain a combined garden for locals to share. Contact your local garden to find out more information.

Alternatively, if your local area does not have a community garden, you can request one be built in your local area. It involves a lot of dedication, but the result can be highly rewarding for yourself and the whole community.
