Open Tuesday-Wednesday and Thursday 9.30am-3.00pm
Many residences are too old to maintain a large garden area but would still benefit socially by being part of the community garden plots or being able to share their knowledge with the younger members of the community, thus breaking down the isolation of our frail aged Community population.
Our objective in establishing our Garden project is to allow the community access and equity to sustainable way of life and build capacity to obtain knowledge of healthy living. There’s the added benefit of the Men’s Shed project on the same grounds which will concentrate its resources to reduce social isolation.
Riverstone Community garden is promoted as a hub of learning, a place where people develop new skills, share information, passion, local and traditional knowledge and a venue for undertaking more formal training.
The establishment of a Bush Tucker Garden will encourage our local Indigenous community to be part of the community Garden as well as promote their culture and traditions amongst other sectors in the community.
Most community gardens find that skill and information sharing happens naturally everyday in the garden. People learn as they garden, share ideas, and pass on their experience.
