Starting time is 10am and all are welcome to come and join in.
The Paddock Community Garden
The Paddock Community Garden occupies a generous, almost half-acre parcel of north-facing land surrounded by beautiful trees. The site forms part of Camdenville Public School and through a land-use agreement, local residents and the school community jointly manage the site.
Producing fresh, locally grown food, 'The Paddock' provides the perfect place for healthy recreational opportunities for residents of all ages to meet and work, to till the soil together and enjoy the harvest, to share information and experiences, and to build strong community relationships. The garden provides local solutions, by local people, to environmental and biodiversity concerns surrounding commercial food production and the food we eat.
The Paddock Community Garden Group is a sub-group of the Newtown Sustainability Group - an Incorporated Association with a Management Committee elected annually by its members. This arrangement ensures that :
Newtown was part of the land occupied by the Cadigal band of the Eora people, and we acknowledge them as the original owners.
