Avalon Community Garden

Building Connections, Health and Happiness With Community Gardening.

An organic vegetable garden built by the local community on Sydney's Northern Beaches.

In the beautiful suburb of Avalon in Sydney's Pittwater region, a group of like minded people have built a garden to grow natural, organic vegetables. The Garden was created in 2010 in the grounds of Barrenjoey High School and has been nurtured and developed since by an enthusiastic team of locals. Avalon Community Garden is open to everyone new members are welcome. So join today and enjoy the benefits of building community and sharing the harvest that the Garden brings.

Details can be found on this site about how to join, when the Garden is open and how it all works, the history of the Garden and the benefits it provides.

Welcome to Avalon Community Garden

Avalon Community Garden’s primary purpose is to encourage and facilitate community gardening in Pittwater on a not-for-profit basis.   The Garden was started in 2010 by a group of locals who worked with the support of Barrenjoey High School to develop a space that could be used by the local community to grow vegetables, herbs, plants and flowers, and practice sustainable gardening techniques.

Since its inception the Garden has grown in terms of infrastructure, variety of produce and diversity of membership.  Members are from all walks of life: tradies, professionals, young, old, novices and gurus.   New members are always welcome whatever their skills, experience and interests might be and the level of commitment they feel comfortable with.

Come and enjoy the benefits of community gardening:

  • growing your own pesticide free food;
  • being part of a connected and resilient community;
  • improving your well-being, increased physical activity and reduced stress;
  • opportunities to interact meaningfully with new friends;
  • time for relaxation and reflection;
  • improved connection with nature, and
  • recycling and sustainable use of natural resources.

To get involved, take a look at our Facebook page or come and share morning tea at the Garden on a Sunday.  You can find us within the grounds of Barrenjoey High School via the southern entrance at 2 Tasman Rd, Nth Avalon.
