Innermost Gardens is a community asset for everyone to enjoy. There are many ways that you can get involved, such as:
Regular working beesWe offer opportunities to get involved during the week or weekend.
Join us every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month @ 11am - 2pm for a garden working bee.
We also run a Tuesday morning group every week from 10am - 12pm.
We'll often start with a short lesson on what's growing and finish with a nice cup of tea.
Contribute to our compost binsWe have easily located compost bins and welcome contributions of food scraps to them as this is how we grow great soil. Instructions for use are located alongside the bins, at the end of Lawson Place. Normal composting dos and don'ts apply.
- We like any fruit and vege scraps, but not fish, meat or animal fats.
- We like coffee grounds, and even provide coffee bean chaff for you to sprinkle over each contribution you make to create a 'brown layer', but we don't like coffee capsules that are made of plastic
- Our bins don't get to the right temperature to break down bio bags - yep, even the ones that say they are home compostable, so bring your waste in a plastic bucket which you can wash with our tap and take home to reuse.
Make a donation. As a community group that relies on volunteers, we are always grateful for some extra cash that can be spent on materials or maintenance. As a registered charity any donations are tax deductible.
Join the core group. If you've some administration, graphic, gardening or leadership skills you want to develop, consider joining the core group which meets on the last Sunday of every month. Email us or talk to us at one of the garden working bees to express your interest.
