About UQ Community Gardens

UQ's community gardens provide a space for staff and students to grow their own fresh food alongside other new and experienced gardeners. We run a series of regular workshops, working bees and other events throughout the year. Or, you can visit the gardens anytime and spend a peaceful moment contemplating nature and recharging.

The two gardens, located at St Lucia campus and Gatton campus, provide a practical way to develop a stronger connection to the food we eat and the environment we live in. The gardens also promote social interaction across generations, disciplines and cultures through gardening, healthy eating and sharing skills and knowledge.
