Community gardens

There’s nothing like preparing and eating food from your own garden. But because not everyone has access to a garden, the City is encouraging residents to team up and work a communal patch of (Council) land.

We now have 15 community gardens, which city people use to grow herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruit. Some are even used for conserving rare plants and seeds.

To find out more about our community gardens, including details of how to start a new one, visit the City of Sydney website.

Towards 2030, we’re helping people set up community gardens so residents can:

  • connect and work together
  • build relationships
  • learn about sustainability.
