Tasmania: community gardens in the press

If we ever wanted evidence that community gardens are now fixtures in our urban landscapes, this reader-contributed photo in The Sorell Times, a local newspaper covering the region just east of Hobart, is it.
The photo is of Bicheno Community Garden. Bicheno, on lutruwita-Tasmania’s east coast, is a popular holiday and surfing venue. That there is a community garden in the town demonstrates just how deeply the practice of community gardening has penetrated Australia’s towns and cities.
Bicheno Community Garden, 67-69 Burgess Street, Bicheno, Tasmania, is one of a growing number that have appeared in Tasmania these past ten years.
