St Helens Community Garden – Glebe, NSW

A community garden in Glebe has brought the residents together and offered an opportunity to enjoy food with little to no mileage.

Thanks to a grant from the City of Sydney, this small pocket of city-fringe land has been transformed into a garden of edible abundance, including rainwater tanks, a worm farm and a collection of compost bins.

They follow organic gardening methods to cultivate vegetables and herbs, shared among the members. With clear objectives that guide their vision, the community members meet regularly at the garden each Sunday morning from 9-11am all year round, and also from 5pm on Thursdays in the summertime, to tend to their incredible creation. They say everyone learns something new every time they meet.

They also keep a journal on their work at – it’s a great read, full of tips and more.
