Warrnambool Community Garden is an integral part of our community. People and organisations can become members and work in communal areas or rent individual plots. All members make some communal contributions.  People can also volunteer without being members - come along on of the any mornings at the bottom of this article.  

 

We have a range of working groups to cater for the wide range of interests that exist within "gardening", including growing vegetables, herbs, native plants and bush foods, and caring for chooks.

 

There are market or produce stalls every Wednesday afternoon, workshops on a range of topics, and a whole range of events around varying themes.  Our capacity to support community events is about to be greatly expanded with the completion of our quarry open space by early 2021. 

 

An increasing area of involvement is education and tours.  We work closely with all levels of education to arrange excursions and incursions on a range of topics which are tailored for the teacher's planned educational purpose. We also run tours of our garden and the adjoining Japanese Garden (Miura Friendship Garden). 

Warrnambool Community Garden is open to members of the public to just come and have a look.  Best times are Tuesday 10:00-12:00, Wednesday 9:00-5:00, Thursday 10:00-12:00 and Saturday 10:00 to 12:00 - or other times if members have the gates open.
