Our history

The Beginnings 2007

Rocks Community Garden commenced in June 2007 when the council allocated the land. It was the first and largest community garden in SW Brisbane. Success was attributed primarily to the adoption of an allotment model where individuals and households or family groups could take up and manage their own garden allotment.

It was developed in three stages

Stage 1 : June 2007 : 18 plots

Stage 2 : July 2007 : 16 plots

Stage 3 : Oct/Dec 2008 : 6 plots

a total of 40 plots across 600 square metres of garden beds

The Flood - 13th January 2011

The flood water covered the garden beds and went to the roof line of the shed
