Building a community garden
Altona Community Gardens Inc. is a local volunteer led group which aims to take advantage of open spaces in our community to grow fruit and vegetables and provide access to nutritionally rich foods grown using organic methods and sustainable practices. We are passionate about building community spirit through gardening.
Altona Community Gardens Inc is located at 2a Somers Pde Altona, by the newly refurbished playground and basketball court in Den Dulk Reserve.
Our garden currently consists of individual raised garden plots, some fruit trees, a composting area and herb pots. In the future, we will have communal beds for demonstrating and sharing produce, a small hydroponic set up for propagation and other demonstrations.
We have only just started our journey and are in the building and planning stage of our garden.
Now is a great time to sign up as a Friend of the Garden.
