Randwick NSW community gardens

I called in to see the Randwick community organic garden on 19 Jan to see what they were doing with their space.

They are funded by the Randwick City Council and the garden is organised along the lines of a structured Council garden space. The area is surrounded by a large storm wire fence and the gates are locked to casual visitors.

I could only get in for a few minutes as someone was going in to water their plants and let me wander for 5 minutes before they had to leave.

They have a small enclosure for chickens, a large water tank and a small building and covered area. It is all very compact and is a mixture apparently of single personal plots with a few communal planting areas – although this was hard to tell by what was growing in the limited time I had to look around.
