The Murramarang Community Garden was inaugurated at a public meeting held in 2010, with construction commencing in 2011 – it is a shared garden for people from Kioloa, Bawley Point, and Termeil. Bordered by Murramarang National Park the garden has a large site on the ANU Kioloa Coastal Campus at Kioloa, irrigated by dam water and in full sun. Regular Saturday morning working bees have resulted in the construction of over 60 garden plots, large storage shed, and compost bays, with fig, citrus blueberry, and hazelnut orchards.
The local ‘Murramarang Community Garden Inc.’, located at the Kioloa Coastal Campus, has expanded to now include some 80+ members with individual garden plots. Recently the community garden area has been expanded to include a cultivated area suitable for communal growing – fruit trees, berries, garlic, potatoes, onions, etc. The industrial container used for storage and work has also had some upgrades, including a roof and pergola. A new addition to the pergola area will be a slow combustion stove, protected by a newly constructed western wall. Paving stones salvaged from ANU Acton campus will be used for paving under the pergola. The MCG group holds regular Saturday working bees and invites friends and visitors to drop by.
