About Bedford Park Community Garden

Bedford Park Community Garden is a place of learning, living, growth and community. A green place in the heart of the Eastern suburbs designed to generate, foster and promote all things sustainable. With a quarter of an acre of green fertile land right behind the main building of the community centre and nestled in some gorgeous remnant bush we have something for everyone.


There has been quite a bit of construction recently!


The Bedford Park Community Garden has truly blossomed in recent weeks! There has been quite a bit of work recenelty to transform what was once a bare grassy patch into a vibrant and thriving community space. If you've been following our journey on Facebook, you've likely witnessed the exciting developments taking place.

In the heart of the garden, a shelter is now standing tall, providing a welcoming space for community members to gather, share stories, and connect with nature. The garden beds, carefully designed and strategically placed, are ready to nurture a variety of plants, creating a tapestry of colours and textures that will soon grace the landscape.

The aromatic promise of delicious community gatherings hangs in the air as a brand-new BBQ area takes shape, set to become a focal point for shared meals and celebrations. Imagine the sizzle of vegetables, the aroma of grilled delights, and the laughter of neighbours enjoying each other's company against the backdrop of our flourishing garden.

A vital addition to our sustainable efforts, a water tank has been installed to capture and utilise rainwater, ensuring the responsible and eco-friendly maintenance of our beloved community garden. This commitment to sustainability aligns with our vision of creating a space that not only brings people together but also fosters a sense of environmental stewardship.

As you scroll through the captivating progress photos below, you'll witness the transformation unfold before your eyes. Each snapshot captures  the evolving landscape and the vibrant spirit that defines the Bedford Park Community Garden.

🌟 Swipe through the photos to see the journey from a bare canvas to a thriving community oasis. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to grow, nurture, and cultivate a space that reflects the beauty of unity and shared purpose. We invite you to join us in this exciting venture, whether by lending a helping hand, sharing your gardening expertise, or simply being part of the vibrant community that is Bedford Park. Together, we are sowing the seeds of a greener, more connected future! 🌿🌷🌞

Permaculture embraces ecological principles such as choosing plants for wildlife as well as people. Planting Indigenous species supports flora and fauna and as these plants are perennial, also means leaving the soil in place (instead of tilling and fertilizing it every year) which helps soil-borne fungi and invertebrates.
