Come gardening with us Friday mornings from 9:00am to 12:30pm and help us plant, weed, and compost. We break for morning tea together and socialise over lunch, you’ll also share in the bounty of any harvest!

There are two areas in the award-winning Randwick Sustainability Hub to work in depending on your interests and expertise. You need to chose which garden you want to work in, but may move between gardens from week to week. Please choose area below:

  • Permaculture Garden and Food Forest – Joining the Permaculture Garden and Food Forest is perfect for those that want expert guidance from landscape architect Steve Batley, and sustainability educator Julian Lee. Over the course of a year, you will learn about regenerative agriculture concepts and there is also the opportunity to learn specialist skills like worm farming, composting, seed saving, propagation and pruning.
  • Community Garden – Joining the Community Garden is perfect for those that want to work with a more autonomous gardening group and/or are experienced gardeners looking for a patch of dirt and to garden with others.

Workshop Program:

After lunch from 1:30-3:30pm you can join us for our workshop series. We are currently limited to ten live participants, however if you miss out, you can still join us on zoom. Recordings of past topics can be found on Council’s youtube channel under the PermaBee playlist.
