Geelong West Community Garden Inc

The Geelong West Community Garden was established in 1985.

It is a wonderful facility for those who don't have room at home to grow vegetables and/or simply want to garden with others in a tranquil environment.

Gardeners share skills, information, seeds and produce. They enjoy the friendship and camaraderie that has developed and which really helps to strengthen and enrich our community.

We have 34 plots for members plus many shared facilities including three equipment sheds, fruit trees, a herb garden, a children's play area, a pizza oven, an outdoor kitchen and a sheltered area for recreation, workshops and meetings. The garden is also adorned with mosaic art sculptures created by local artist, Helen Millar, and community members.

As it is a community facility, we often host school groups and other organisations so that we can, in a sense, share what we have.
