WA Community Garden Gathering — 19-20 May 2018
On the 19th and 20th May at Perth City Farm we are Gathering together the largest group of community gardeners in West Australian history.
Community gardens are diverse, creative places that grow communities and food as well as model sustainability, and are central to securing food and our future. Over the last year, we have visited community gardens and gathered your ideas through our poll (click to complete). We have designed and planned this Gathering with you in mind.
There will be a range of exciting opportunities for participation that include:
- stimulating Plenary sessions
- action-packed Open Space discussions
- challenging Companion Circles, and
- exploratory sessions to Build Capacities.
Community Gardens from across the State have been invited to host an Engagement Activity.
We’ll also have:
- City Farm tours,
- skills sessions and
- plenty of time to mingle.
There will be live music, activities for the children and (sigh) spaces to stop, stretch and take a breath. There’s something for everyone.
This event will enable community gardens to share knowledge, produce, ideas and experiences with others. This is an opportunity to show what community gardens contribute to our world and then plan for action to strengthen and build our network.
The WA community gardens are all very different, creative and special places. Places that are growing community, along with their vegetables!
This event is an opportunity to share both your knowledge, experiences, highlights and stories from your gardens.
Our aim is to bring all the WA community gardens together in May 2018 to knowledge share and build a stronger and connected community.
“Feeding the roots, Harvesting the knowledge”
…2018 WA Community Garden Committee
A whole weekend talking about Community gardens, meeting fellow gardeners from around the state and the county.
Tell us about your garden, listen about someone else’s, listen and contribute to some current academic studies and get to ask those difficult questions to some Local Government members.
