Manly Vale Community Garden
|Manly Vale Community Garden|
Despite the less than favourable weather conditions gardeners were not deterred. It was great to see how the site has come along since early 2010, the gardens are located at 4 - 8 Innes Road, Manly Vale. Warringah Council has constructed a playground on site, both the Gardens and the council are responsible for maintanence of areas with the site.
The gardens contain a great rotunda used for community and garden events as well as storage for the gardens, a greenhouse used for propagation and cultivation of produce, rainwater is also collected from the rotunda. The garden operates with organic principles.

Port Kembla Community GardenThe garden itself was once an univiting courtyard viewed through the bars of the community centre, although the bars may still be there, they now melt into the tropical oasis that lies beyond, now banana trees, paw paws, cardamom and lemon grass are but a few of the plants now thriving.
Local Port Kembla bananas ripening in the sun (left of picture), and they taste good as well, thanks Cheryl.
