Community gardens are becoming increasingly popular among many communities as they offer people a chance to get together, put in some hard work and create fresh produce and plants that can be enjoyed by everyone in the neighbourhood.
A lot of Everton Park residents may not realise that there are quite a few community gardens in the Greater Brisbane area and that local residents also have the opportunity to start up a community garden of their own.
To start a community garden you need to first consider where to make it – for example it could be in a council park, a school, church grounds or a community centre. Once you have found a place you think would make for a great community garden you then need to consider its suitability based on its accessibility to the public, nearby amenities, and whether it is supported by its neighbours. You also need to find a group of people who can manage the garden and keep it thriving.
You can find more tips and advice about starting a community garden by visiting the Brisbane City Council website.
It may take a little bit of work to start up a community garden but they can be well worth the effort and they make for a great place that can be enjoyed everyone.
So do you know of any places in Everton Park that you would love to see become a community garden? Or are you involved in a community garden elsewhere in Brisbane that you think others should visit?
