The Tecoma Community Garden sits on half an acre of Council-owned land and attracts enthusiast locals who live on properties with limited, or no, sunlight in the hills area.
The garden features individual garden plots, a shared orchard, a hot compost system, rainwater collection and a food share cupboard with surplus food being donated to Food is Free Tecoma. Chemical-free gardening is practiced.
Garden members pay a one-off joining fee and an annual fee for a full or half plot.
Working bees are held on the last weekend of each month on alternating Saturdays and Sundays, 9.30-12.00pm followed by a shared morning tea. An end of year celebration is also held by members
