Yoorala St Community Garden is located in The Gap, Brisbane and is open to all who wish to get involved and join our community.

What We Do

This is an organic garden – no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides are used on site.  The garden is made up of “communal areas”, which are developed and maintained by all members.

The communal areas are the fruit orchard; herb and flower beds; vegetable gardens and native plantings around the perimeter.  Produce from the communal areas is harvested (only) at working bees and shared among all those present.

Members & Plots

Members are encouraged to attend regular working bees (held every Sunday morning from 8.00am for members; from 8.30am for visitors) and be actively involved in the garden – as much as they would like to.

No previous gardening experience is required. Membership is open to all abilities and age groups. A children’s sand pit and shaded area is available. Raised garden-beds are available to members with accessibility needs; as well as some access-friendly areas and paths.

The garden has 30 plots which can be rented by financial members.

Plot holders are responsible for providing all the materials and plants for their plot. They can work their plot any time and the produce is theirs, although sharing and swapping is encouraged!

How To Join

Garden membership is open to everyone; you don’t need to be an experienced gardener. Community gardening is suitable for all ages, and all abilities. We have some ‘access friendly’ areas and paths in the garden and raised garden-beds are available to members with accessibility needs.

If you would like to find out more, or get your hands dirty, just turn up any Sunday morning (about 8.30am).  If you want to keep coming, we ask that you become a financial member of the garden (currently Adult $25; Family $35 – annual fees).
