Community Garden

If you would like to meet like-minded people, learn new gardening techniques or even share your own skills with the group, please call into the house to find out more information.

The team at St Helens Neighbourhood House manages two community gardens.  We have a small garden located at the centre and consists entirely of raised beds.  It also has a small fruit orchard that consists of an apple, nashi pear, apricot, nectarine and lemon tree.  The gardening team responsible for maintaining this garden meet every Tuesday from 10am to 12pm at the St Helens Neighbourhood House.

The larger garden is part of the THRIVE initiative and is located at Annie Street.  This garden is a social enterprise and we regularly sell fresh produce harvested from this garden to our community at affordable prices.  Due to the size of the garden we have recently allocated volunteers with individual rows that they may maintain.  We ask all our volunteers to practice organic gardening methods.  The team meet regularly for meetings, to share knowledge and to view webinars in relation to gardening. 

If you would like to know more please contact Trish on 6376 1134 or email admin@sthelensnhh.org.au for more information.
