North Perth Community Garden

Basic CMYK

Located at 10 Farmer Street, North Perth

North Perth Community Garden (NPCG) is a community hub where people can gather, socialise, garden and learn about sustainability initiatives.

The 820m2 space is more than a place for individuals to garden. It is an integral part of the local community and many of the members or their partners are also members of the immediate neighbours Vincent Men’s Shed, North Perth Tennis Club or North Perth Bowling Club.

The precinct is a hive of activity for many. The  garden is predominantly for growing herbs, vegetables and some flowers. If you are interested in larger plants there is a  small orchard and a native garden area which is cared for by all members. The garden is not intended as certified organic but the aim is to operate on organic principles nurturing our soil, using low toxicity, naturally derived products and limiting any type of chemical use.

The garden also consists of 41 individually leased plots for members to grow their own produce and three large plots managed by a group of communal gardeners who share the fruits of their labours.

NPCG is an incorporated body and is operated by a community steering committee and supported by the City of Vincent.

At NPCG Vincent residents have three options of membership; annually leasing an individual plot, an annual contribution toward the community plots and access to the produce from the community plot, or a friend of NPCG membership.

For more information on the garden, upcoming events or workshops and memberships please contact northperthcommunitygarden@gmail.com or visit their website or Facebook page.
