Cheery Tomato Community Garden

The Cheery Tomato Community Garden


This garden is located on League grounds alongside the hockey rink and across the street from the Bonnie Doon Leisure Centre & Tennis Courts. With a small playground close by for young children, it is a nice relaxing spot to garden, visit with passers-by and enjoy the outdoors.

(Phase 1) was constructed in May 2012, with 5 more beds added in September 2016, which nearly doubled the growing space.

In 2015, the decision was made to 'grow as a group'. This means garden beds are planted, maintained and harvested as a group, rather than having individual spots. The result has allowed for an all-around success and the watering work (via on-site hose) is evenly shared.

If you are interested in joining the garden group, please contact us - we aim to include all levels of gardening ability and agility.
