The Garden


Our Philosophy


Rocks Community Garden operates under organic gardening principles and acknowledges the educational and economic value to members and the broader community of growing food and other produce locally as well as reducing ‘food miles’ and increasing self-sufficiency for households.


Individual Plots


The community garden is focused on the production and harvesting of food crops. It operates under an individual allotment model.

 

Each plot is the responsibility of one member, family or community group.
