A garden to grow community connections

Wednesday 20 July 2022

There’s never been a better time to get into community gardening, especially if you live near or visit Little Brighton Reserve.

We’ll soon be installing a community garden to grow your own produce near the playground in the reserve, as well as planting more indigenous vegetation throughout the site.

Community gardens bring people together for so many good reasons. Growing your own food individually or in a collective encourages community connection and is great for your health and wellbeing,” said Mayor Cr Alex del Porto

The seed for the shared garden was planted by a local resident, with support growing when we engaged the local community on the concept designs in April – May 2022.

If you’re interested in a little patch of this community garden, there’s still time to get involved. Get in touch with Kirsten Friend, Sustainability Projects Officer via phone 9599 4751 or email
