Welcome to WBCG

The community garden is located in Bunya Park, Eleebana (Cherry Road).

We have regular scheduled Working Bees on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 9 am to 2 pm, and every Wednesday from about 8am to 11 am.

Bring the family and share in the experience of growing friendship, food and community.

Come along and join in, meet new people, learn new skills, and have a free lunch.

Everyone welcome

If you have any queries, please phone our Convenor, Trudy Patterson, on 0411 016 108

As well as the regular working bees, there are lots of activities to particpate including seedling growing, stalls, composting, garden planning, information events and regular social catch-ups over morning tea. It is also likely to be some activity in the garden on weekends and sometimes during the week.
