We are a group of around 40 gardeners who live in the City of Sydney and share a garden of native plants, native bees, flowers and vegetables.
Coming from all walks of life, we share an interest in sustainable living, cherish open space and city parks, follow organic and biodynamic principles and most of all – we don’t mind getting our hands dirty!
The Gardens consist of 20 individual plots, with common garden beds and a sunny, grassy lawn on the beautiful grounds of the St John Bishopthorpe Anglican Church in Glebe.
We don’t use pesticides or herbicides, we feed crops from our compost bin and water everything from our rainwater tank. We enjoy our garden as a community and view sustainability as essential, not a nice to have.
“An organic farm, properly speaking, is not one that uses certain methods and substances and avoids others; it is a farm whose structure is formed in imitation of the structure of a natural system that has the integrity, the independence and the benign dependence of an organism.”
— Wendell Berry, The Gift of Good Land
We meet every second Saturday of the month (except January) at 10am for a working bee, and on days highlighted on our Facebook page.
Next Meeting: Saturday 12 September, 10am.
