Busselton Community Garden are a not for profit, incorporated body, who are in the process of constructing and managing a Community Garden, located in the Shire of Busselton, in Western Australia.

The purpose of the garden is to provide a place for people to come together and grow their own fruit and vegetables, using only organic methods.

By growing food locally – we’re saving the planet! But we’re not only about improving the local environment, the garden is also a great way to improve your social network and learn more about organic gardening.

Get involved

You can get involved in a variety of different ways:

Become a member of the community garden, this allows us to keep the gardens going and to build our register of helpers and supporters.

Single ($15) Family ($20) Senior ($10)

Volunteer days are held every Tuesday and Saturday mornings.  Come along and get helping, enjoy making new friends, share your knowledge or learn something new and stay for morning tea.

Busy Bee days are held every Tuesday and Saturday mornings.  Lend a hand with some digging, weeding or planting they’re lots of fun and a great way to get involved and meet others. There is always plenty to do and learn.

Adopt a garden plot for a year $90 or ($60 concession).  You can do this by filling out the Membership form membership form and email to secretary@bcg.garden or print a copy and bring to the BCG on a Tuesday or Saturday morning and we will contact you as soon as possible.  Plot costs are calculated at time of joining and based on the financial year.  Please wait until you have had your information session and tour and a price will be calculated.  Subject to availability.  We currently have a lot of vacant plots.  Now is a great time to get involved.

Run a workshop, sharing your knowledge and wisdom with the community.  We have a range of spaces for hire to run your workshops.  If you are interested in running a workshop especially with the focus on school students after school or during the school holidays please contact the committee.
