My knowledge of community gardening has been rapidly expanding over the past weeks and months. It turns out community gardeners are an increasingly active group motivated by fresh produce and a sunny plot for gardening. Community gardens bring together people with an interest in gardening, or learning more about gardening, who are looking to share the experience with other similar minded people.

In Canberra/Queanbeyan there are 12 community gardens run by the Canberra Organic Growers Society with a few more currently in the making. ABC Canberra has featured several of these local organic community gardens and has created an interactive map of Canberra’s Community Gardens as a downloadable app for your iphone/smart phone.

The photos above and below are of a community garden in the Merimbula area, it appears they are everywhere!
