Welcome to North Perth Community Garden’s website: we hope you find it interesting and informative. Please come and join us in our garden to learn more.
Our 820m2 space is more than a place for individuals to garden. We strive to be an integral part of our local community being a hub for people to meet, share, socialise, and learn. Many of our members or their partners are also members of our immediate neighbours Vincent Men’s Shed, North Perth Tennis Club or North Perth Bowling Club. The precinct is a hive of activity for many.
Our garden is predominantly for growing herbs, vegetables and some flowers. We also have a Greenhouse for propagation of seeds and strikes. If you are interested in larger plants we do have a small orchard and a native garden area. Our garden is not intended as certified organic but we do aim to operate on organic principles nurturing our soil, using low toxicity, naturally derived products and limiting any type of chemical use.
Our garden is divided into; a general area for all members, communal beds co-leased by a group of members who share the fruits of their labours and 41 individually leased plots for that member’s exclusive use. The general areas includes; our orchard, native garden, some raised garden beds, compost, worm farms and a propagating Greenhouse.
