Community gardens are spaces where local residents can gather to grow food, relax, learn and make new friends.
Hurstville City’s community garden is on the corner of Wright and Cross streets, Hurstville and opened in 2007.
Hurstville City Council donated the land for the community garden, in a project initiated by former Hurstville Councillor Sandy Grekas.
The garden features a communal area and more than 30 plots, which were allocated to residents through a ballot system when it started.
It is managed by the Hurstville Community Garden Association, comprised of interested community members.
The garden is also a regular venue for sustainability workshops which Council hosts for the community.
