Working Bees are held every Sunday morning from 8.00am for members; and from 8.30am for visitors.

Attendance is voluntary but we encourage all members to attend as often as they can as it spreads the workload and we get a lot more done if many hands are available.

Working bees also help foster the community aspects of the garden – working together as a community is a key goal of the garden.

If you wish to visit the garden and find out what we do, please just turn up at a working bee at 8.30am on any Sunday morning. There will always be someone to welcome you, and invite you to join in – and give you a gardening task to assist with. New members are always welcomed!

Plot holders also benefit from shared work, for example, the pizza oven, maintenance of pathways, bulk purchase of mulch, provision of tools and much more so pitch in and be part of our thriving community.

  • Plot holders are expected to join a POD and attend 4 working bees in a year; or 12 hours of community garden work. This is a requirement of the annual renewal of your plot lease.
