 About Us

Our Mission

Taroona Neighbourhood Garden aims to provide a sunny open space for local residents to learn organic gardening skills, grow nutritious food and engage in healthy outdoor exercise and social activities related to gardening. The Association promotes education around organic growing methods to the broader community.

We welcome visitors to enjoy our garden and gain inspiration, but please do not pick our produce.

 Establishment

A supportive Kingborough Council supplied the land in 2007. The original idea was pitched by local garden enthusiast Nathan White, and the work of constructing the plots and establishing the garden was done by our own local organic gardening guru, David Stephen.

The garden consists of 50 family or group plots of about 6 square metres each. There are also 2 long raised communal beds with a rotational system in place, and other 'community' areas around the perimeter fence. There is a herb garden on the outer perimeter on the Chiton Chase frontage.

Constitution

Subscriptions

An individual family or group must be a financial member to garden on a plot. The annual sub is $60, but a concession ($30) is available on request for Low Income Health Care Card holders.

Associate membership for those without a plot is $10.

Enquiries

You are welcome to call in to the garden at any time to look around and talk to whoever is there. You will often find one or two members working away there, so ask them about the garden. Be aware that we usually have a waiting list for a plot and that we give preference to Taroona residents. Apply to join the waiting list by email to: tng@taroona.tas.au
