Manna Community Garden has been going for 20 years and meets every Monday morning 10am to Noon to plan, work and enjoy good company over a cuppa after a couple of hours gardening.
Behind the Community House in Station Street Foster, you’ll find a delightful little garden growing an abundance of vegetables and fruit. There are no external fences, it is a place for everyone to enjoy. Children can wander through the park and pick the peas or apples, smell the lavender, rosemary and sage and interact in a productive garden environment that stimulates the senses.
Several years ago this block of land was vacant except for the 100 year old gum tree that sits prominently to one side, when as inspired gardener, Juneen Schulz enquired about putting it to practical use. It wasn’t long before she was joined by a group of enthusiastic people who wanted to learn more about gardening and share their time with another like-minded folk.
Anyone is welcome to join in and have fun making scarecrows, meditating, sowing, propagating, finding out how to make an edible food forest and so much more. There’s a hand-made solid timber banquet table that is fit for the finest picnic while you enjoy the serenity of this delightful park-like garden.
