Peachey Community Garden update

Peachey Community Garden was started in August 2008 as a “plotted community garden”, which meant that individuals were given their own small plot to grow what they wished, as they wished.

The objective of the garden has since evolved and it is now a Communal Garden- the work of cultivating, planting, watering, fertilising and harvesting is communal and the harvest is collective, shared equally amongst fellow gardeners with the excess of any harvest being sent to the not-for-profit organisation Soul Centre Food Pantry at Upper Coomera.

Peachey Community Garden is a wonderful Community initiative and a great way to educate yourself or your children on the art of growing organic produce, being self-sufficient and maintaining the land in order to productively & sustainably produce fruit & vegetables.

2013 sees the garden booming, with structures such as utility sheds, water tanks and a gazebo being erected. A new seedling nursery is being started and a crop rotation system implemented. Our garden is taking shape and we’d love for you to be a part of it.
