We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands and water upon which we meet. This always was & always will be Kaurna land.
The Queenstown Neighbourhood Garden has been in development since July 2022, and since then a small group of local garden enthusiasts have transformed what was a vacant plot of grass and weeds into a budding community garden with various types of garden beds, native plants and different types of herbs, veggies, flowers and trees. The garden fully relies on locals to help with planting, planning, watering and harvesting.
A regular garden session is now planned for every Monday (morning) and Thursday (afternoon), and what gets done each time depends on how many hands are available to help, what materials we have gathered and what plants or seeds have been donated. The garden is very much a work in progress, and we welcome any and all people who want to help turn it into a lively neighbourhood garden.
Come along either on Monday or Thursday, or both. We usually have a cuppa after our hard work together, but this is not obligatory or expected of you. If you just want to get your hands dirty, that is fine too! Bring your own gardening gloves and favourite tools if you want.
The Neighbourhood Garden is located on the Traditional lands of the Kaurna People. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty of this land was never ceded. We promise to tread lightly and consider it our duty to look after the land as best we can.
The Neighbourhood Garden activities are made possible with support from the Australian Government Department of Social Services, our partner ECH Inc. and the South Australian Government Office for Ageing Well.
