We are active online, through live events and workshops. We are always looking for donations, volunteers and events to attend!
We are a group of volunteers and we work with no formal funding. We depend on donations and opportunities given to us by community. We work hard with our donations to provide opportunities in education and empowerment to grow, share and eat fruit and vegetables.
CASH donations are welcome at events
SEEDS are always a great donation, a little goes a long way. We are happy with backyard and commercial seed. We put these into our free seed bank which is open to the community at our events for deposits and withdrawals.
GARDEN MATERIALS are a great donation. Straw, manure, potting mix, edge stripes, raised garden beds, good tools, newspaper, cardboard, pots, stakes. These are all used to start new community gardens and build up old ones,
SEEDLINGS are fantastic and always welcome. If you have excess in the garden, dig them up and brigs them along. These are great starters for beginners and experienced gardeners.We love seedlings in egg cartons and recycled containers!
CUTTINGS are excellent. We have a great network of gardeners who are happy to strike from cuttings.
PLANTS are great. We love established plants
TREES are superb! We get few of these and they are always welcome
Please clean all your pots carefully in bleach and try to use new potting mix to prevent contamination of gardens
