Community Garden


Chapel Street Community Garden (CSCG) promotes the growing of fresh, organic produce in a community setting. Since it was opened in May 2012 the garden has grown and the CSCG has installed a pergola, BBQ, pizza oven, rain garden and aqua garden.

The community garden was set up with the support of the City of Burnside and officially opened in May 2012. 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.
On Saturday 25th October 2013, the group celebrated the installation of three new garden beds, pergola, rain garden, aqua garden, raised bed, pizza oven, BBQ and Scarecrow.
