Trott Park Community Garden Inc.

The City of Marion recognises that community gardens contribute to the wellbeing of communities and provide diverse health, social, environmental and cultural benefits. In particular:

  • Community gardens have the potential to connect communities, build friendships and provide a recreation and educational resource for all age groups.

  • Community gardens enable people to pursue horticultural activities in an urban environment and can be particularly valuable in medium and higher density areas where people may have limited garden space.

  • Community gardens provide an opportunity to grow food in an environmentally sustainable way and contribute to addressing food security.

    The Trott Park Community Garden Inc is a place for everyone to meet, to learn, to grow and to enjoy their rewards.
