Community Garden


Chapel Street Community Garden (CSCG) promotes the growing of fresh, organic produce in a community setting. The community garden was set up with the support of the City of Burnside and officially opened in May 2012. 

Since it was opened the garden has grown and the CSCG has installed a pergola, BBQ, pizza oven, rain garden and aqua garden. The garden is run by a passionate group of community members who meet monthly to guide working bee activities and the development of the garden.

Open Days

Members of the public are warmly invited to join the community at monthly open days on the third Saturday of each month. This is an opportunity to meet the community, help out in the garden and find out more about how to get involved.

The garden is also open every Tuesday morning between 9 am and 12 noon for visitors to drop in.

Any members of the public who are interested in being part of the community garden's success are encouraged to contact CSCG at 8331 9344 (Monday - Friday 9 am to 1 pm) or
