Axedale Community Garden fosters positive community connections and grows nourishing food and plants that are good for people and the planet!
Although we are a relatively young community garden; established in 2020, volunteers report the encouraging atmosphere, learning and sharing gardening skills with like-minded people, and a sense of achievement to be why they love tending to this wonderful garden. Many of us have felt a stronger sense of community within our small town because of our involvement in the garden, especially for some of the volunteers that haven’t been a resident of Axedale long.
We are particularly proud of the teamwork that creating a new garden involves and seeing the garden evolve in such a short period of time, especially beginning during a pandemic! The community connections with the Uniting Church, the local CWA, Foodshare, Primary School, the Gamelan ensemble, Tavern, and the support we have received from the Bendigo Council, local businesses, and community members are greatly appreciated and valued. We hope we can give back in more ways than fresh produce and smiling faces!
We can’t wait to see you down at the patch and to welcome you into such a positive space (and to enjoy the banter, experience awe from the wonderfully coloured sign, the funny gardening mistakes learned along the way, and morning tea!
