Community Garden

About our Garden

The Marong Neighbourhood House Community Garden vision was conceived in 2019 in response to community requests.  The establishment of the garden commenced in 2020 and is continuing to be improved.

The Garden provides a means to promote the growing of food and healthy eating, to provide education and training, to Inspire and enable people to successfully grow their own.

Our garden beds are designed to suit everyone in the community.  We have ‘no bend’ beds, beds accessible for wheelchairs and prams, and child friendly beds.

Our garden beds are currently planted out with vegetables and we have a small orchard of fruit trees.
