SHOVEL community garden

SHOVEL is a community with a common interest in nurturing the resources that God has given us. We do this by growing our own food, using sustainable practices.

Anyone with an interest in sustainable gardening is welcome to join us, regardless of gardening experience and knowledge.

Members can share in the harvest of the vegetables we grow together in our community plots and/or can rent their own plot for a small annual fee.

When do we meet?

We meet on the second Sunday of the month.

During the warmer months, October to March, we will meet at 3 pm for afternoon tea, followed by a working bee to care for our shared beds or a short talk from a member of the community or invited guest about an aspect of gardening.

Between April and September we will meet between 12 noon and 3 pm. We will start with a shared lunch, followed by a working bee and/or talk.
