Church Community Gardens in Australia

There are so many awesome Community Gardens created by, run by, hosted by and in partnership with churches all around Australia.

The following list is an attempt to collate some of our knowledge of where these gardens are so that you can find one near you, find more information about establishing your own at your church, or network for support and information sharing.

If your garden isn’t on this list, please don’t be offended, just help us to make the list better by emailing us (our full name) @

And remember, your Community Garden can count towards your Five Leaf Eco-Awards! To find out if you have done enough to earn an award yet, click on the ‘Survey’ button on our front page (also includes a link to a printable version).

Happy Gardening!
