Established in the 1980s, this garden has a rich history of inclusion and outreach since its inception, including the Luncheon Club run by Kerry Anne and ACON, a support group for men with HIV/AIDS.
The garden, tucked behind South Sydney Uniting Church, has 16 plots, each allocated to a gardener. It also has a chicken coop with 15 hens, composting facilities and a worm farm.
The garden boasts a mature fig tree, banana plants and a feijoa. The garden is locked, but regular working bees occur. And we can take the community’s food scraps too!
