The Habitat community plant nursery and food garden is now in its 10th year. It is run by volunteers and sells local native plants, food plants and companion plants. We are open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. Our community food garden is open to the public 24/7 and everyone is invited to harvest from the garden with a focus on sharing and just taking what you need for the day. We also have native bee hives, worm farms, composting, frogs and sometimes tawny frogmouths in our tree.
Our overall focus is on small bird habitat which is also great for pollinators. We focus specifically on creating corridors and connections to allow these small birds to travel safely and to survive. Every garden needs a dense corner of native vegetation to protect our small native birds such as fairywrens, red-browed finch, pardalotes, silver eyes and scrubwrens. These tiny areas of your garden can help re-create the lost corridors that these small birds need to move safely from one bushland remnant to another. Come along and talk to us about growing food and learn how to integrate small bird habitat into your garden.
