The Lakemba Community Garden was established in 2011 in partnership with Canterbury City Council and offers residents the opportunity to grow vegetables and herbs in the company of other residents. The Lakemba Community Garden is located in Jubilee Reserve on the corner of Railway Pde and Bellevue Ave, Lakemba.
The Garden is a space where local residents can grow their own vegetables and contribute toward sustainable living in Sydney. It is also a place to meet other locals, make new friends, get some exercise and fresh air, learn new skills and build on your gardening knowledge.
A total of 29 plots are available in large and small sizes, with two plots allocated to people with a disability and two allocated to local organisations. The Lakemba Community Garden also includes a communal herb spiral built by the Gardeners and other communal planting areas.
Plot holders must be residents of the Canterbury Local Government Area and priority will be given to those within a 750 metre square radius of the garden and who do not have access to their own garden.
Eligible Residents pay a fee every six months and must commit to maintaining their plot and participating in at least two working bees each year. The Lakemba Community Garden is supported by the Gardeners through a small Committee under the auspice of Canterbury City Community Centre.
The Lakemba Community Garden is located in Jubilee Reserve, Cnr Bellevue Ave and Railway Parade Lakemba.
