Garden

During the NSW Physical Distancing period to the end of June, SLA is not inviting the public to attend the Community Garden.

We don’t have individual plots, nor formal membership, it’s all shared garden, and anyone is welcome to turn up when they can to give us a hand, or just to shop. We have tools, but best to bring your own gloves if you’d like to work in the garden. Anyone who works in the garden can take some lovely fresh chemical-free food away with them when they go. Produce is also sold at the Armidale Local Food Stall, Farmers’ Market first and third Sunday each month starting at 8am, Curtis Park.
