Crace Community Garden
24 March @ 10:00 am - 25 March @ 4:00 pm
Crace is a Canberra Organic Growers Community Garden – this is a relatively new suburb so the garden is providing a great opportunity for locals to get to know each other. The 2000-square-metre garden was built by Crace’s developers; there are 30 raised garden beds of varying sizes, and a few larger plots are shared by up to four plotholders each. There is a very wide variety of vegetables grown, with cultural differences being highlighted in the varied choice within plots. As well plot-holders vary in their methods of composting, mulching, rotating etc. Excess produce is swapped and any extra is donated to a nearby Community Pantry supporting low income families. Around the perimeter are rosemary, lavender and blueberry bushes as well as fruit trees such as pomegranates and feijoas.
