Our Neighbourhood Garden was established early 2016.
Our aim is to provide a welcoming place for people of all ages and beliefs to have the opportunity to meet and share in the joy of easy gardening with a relaxed and non-judgemental group of people.
We do aim to produce fruit and vegetables that are shared freely to all members at no cost to whoever is there. We have and hope to continue to fully fund the garden through recycling bottles and cans provided by church and community members.
Whilst we operate on Normanhurst Uniting Church property and are able to be insured through the Uniting Church as a recognised activity, we do not expect our members to be a part or become part of the church community.
The garden is for those who may not have a garden and also for anyone to come and spend a few hours of easy interaction whether that involves gardening or just chatting and solving the world’s issues over a cup of tea and piece of cake.
Age is not a barrier, nor gardening skill, just a friendly attitude and a few spare hours on any Saturday morning that can be spared.
During daylight saving hours we meet at 8:30am and usually have morning tea around 10:00am and the morning finishes usually between 11:00am - 11:30am.
In non daylight saving hours we commence an hour later at 9:30am.
As our group is diverse in many ways and to ensure the safety of everyone, we expect that all attendees have been fully vaccinated.
