UQ's community gardens provide a space for students, staff and local community members to grow their own produce, share food together, learn new skills and meet friends. It is a place for people of all ages, from different disciplines and cultures, with all levels of gardening experience to come together.

During this event, our dedicated Community Garden Coordinator Michael will prove that you don't need acres to grow a healthy garden. As city dwellers, many of us don't have access to a backyard. Michael will show you how to make your garden thrive in a limited space using the 'square foot gardening' method!

We are always looking for new members and friendly faces to join the gardens. You can join the Facebook Community here.
