KOTARA : March Street Community Garden

Located in March Street, Kotara, these gardens were established in 1999 by the Newcastle City Council in the "Community Greening Centre".  Now we are an autonomous group, acting as the caretakers of the property which has been fenced off within the March Street Reserve.

Members can attend to their plots 24/7 ... the only drawback is that there are no toilet facilities.  This is in the process of being rectified.  The plot system is individual ... however, surplus produce is often shared by the grower.

MORISSET : Yunung Community Garden

The Yunung Bush Tucker Community Garden project was established in 2009 with the assistance of a grant from the Hunter Area Assistance Scheme and permission from Lake Macquarie City Council to use a 3000 square meter block of land on the site of 143 Dora Street, adjacent to the Morisset Multi Purpose Centre.

In partnership with Landcare, Southlake Community Services’ objective in establishing a community garden for the use of community members is to increase the level of cooperation and interaction across all community groups.

The garden provides:

  • opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to participate in volunteer programs
  • opportunities for the Aboriginal and broader community to learn more about the indigenous culture through the native food garden
  • opportunities for hands-on training, skill development and employment in industries relating to horticulture particularly among the target groups of Youth, Men, Mental Health and AOD clients.
