Free for the picking

Posted on May 05, 2016 by Claire Mukhi

Community Gardens aren't necessarily a new concept, but just how up to speed are you with what lies beyond your back fence? 

A true foodie knows the difference a pungent fresh herb or crunchy new veggies can make to a dish although a lot of us are blissfully unaware of just how many are lying around us, free and ready to be picked!

Community gardens and urban farms are places where people come together to grow fresh food, to learn, relax and make new friends. 

If you are passionate about good quality produce but you don’t have the space or resources, you can still keep your green thumbs busy by getting involved with a local community garden. Community gardening offers you the opportunity to grow and harvest your own produce. It also creates more green patches of vegetables, plants and flowers across the city.

To explore what lies amongst your streets you can view registered gardens here or better still, go and register a garden you start.
