Lyneham Commons is a community run public food forest in Canberra, Australia. Established in 2014 by a motivated group of Lyneham residents, everyone is encouraged and welcome to be involved in the running of the project and our monthly working bees, with various activities throughout the year.

The Commons is committed to providing a growing space for the local community to grow our own food by employing sustainable organic methods and permaculture principles. Our goal is to regenerate public land, improve food security, provide education, reduce agricultural impact and grow food for the benefit of all.

Lyneham Commons is situated on unleased Territory Land behind the Lyneham Primary School adjacent to Sullivans Creek storm water drain. It is a great site for us because:

  • it is accessible along a shared bike/walking path not not on a road
  • it is  very close to the Lyneham shops, the Lyneham Primary School and the Lyneham High School
  • it contains some mature trees along its boundary for shade
  • it slopes gently towards Sullivans Creek
  • it is small enough to be easily manageable but large enough for a small food forest.

We can be found behind the Lyneham shops.
