Community Garden

Is located on our property, just up from Floraville Road. The garden was established in 2010 with the aim of bringing people together to grow and harvest fresh fruit and vegetables and then share the spoils with each other and the local community.

Like all other activities and ministries at St Luke’s, the community garden welcomes everyone in our neighborhood.

The garden is a shared garden. People do not own plots or sections of the garden. We promote sustainable organic gardening and foster sharing of gardening ideas and skills.

We hold regular working “fun” bees, usually on the first Saturday of the month, between 8.30-10.30am. They are open to all. We do a little work, a lot of chatting and usually finish with morning tea.

Workshops about gardening and other events are held from time to time.

For more details, please contact Bruce Helman on 49467974.

“We garden because we are created in the image of the Master Gardener, in whose likeness we grow in measure as we garden. We are not only the field that God gardens but his fellow gardeners in the paradise he is restoring. When we garden in humility, with love of truth and beauty, love of the Beloved One himself, paradise grows up around us.”

Vigen Gurioan, The Fragrance of God, p.48
