About Us

Darlington Community Garden is a local community garden, located right in the heart of Darlington.  A group of volunteers have been working since 2018 to create the foundations for our garden - liaising with the Shire of Mundaring to secure a lease, fundraising and securing grants for the garden, working on the drainage and soil, writing a constitution, and building our beautiful arbour.  

 

We are now at the point where we can build our garden beds, in readiness for planting as soon as the weather allows. Our hope is that the community garden will become a meeting place for the community,  where we can work together to grow healthy organic produce, encourage each other in living more sustainably and caring for our precious environment, and where  community members will feel a sense of belonging and connection with others.

 

Please join us! We would love to have you involved. 

 

Join us in the garden

Our community garden will be open twice a week for a busy bee, initially to establish our garden beds and soil, and then to plant our veggies and fruit trees and care for the garden.

 

Busy bees are every Wednesday evening from 5pm and every Saturday morning from 8am. 

Whatever your gardening knowledge, you will be welcome!  

 

To be active in the community garden, you will need to be a member (so that you are covered by insurance).
