Be part of the growth of the Chigwell Community Garden

From crisp lettuce to hearty silverbeet, fresh kale to fragrant parsley and more, the bounty just keeps growing at the Chigwell Community Garden!

It has been an incredibly fruitful few months since the garden re-opened on 2 February, with more than 200 kilograms of delicious, nutritious food produced and given away free of charge to the local community.

Now, mark your calendars for 28 June because that’s when the garden will unveil its brand new Aboriginal Bush Tucker garden!

Developed in partnership with Relationships Australia Tasmania, the project was funded by the Healthy Tasmania Fund through the Tasmanian Government, and supported by the Chigwell Child and Family Centre.

At the grand opening event (10am-1pm), children and families can immerse themselves in the wonders of nature, learn all about bush tucker, and even roll up their sleeves and help plant some themselves.

And the Chigwell Community Garden has even more exciting news to share – it recently received a grant from the Tasmanian Government to purchase a second shipping container!

With so much growth and expansion happening, you won’t want to miss a moment. So come on down to the Garden from 10- 2pm on Wednesdays or 10.30am-1pm Thursdays (Playgroup) and see what delicious food you can take home with you.

It’s all happening here, and you’re invited to be a part of it! For more information, phone Conrad at the Bucaan Community House on 6249 5363.
