The Milang Community Garden aims to produce healthy, fresh, nutritious, locally grown fruit and vegetables. It includes communal plots and individual beds. Come and join the bunch of resourceful and helpful local growing community members for a cuppa and a chat and get involved in this fantastic garden.
Many plots are avail, and loads of organic composted soil on hand. Toolshed and undercover area with outdoor potbelly for the rainy days. Open all hours, and community gardening get-togethers every Tuesday morning from 8.30am until 12pm.
The Life with Gusto Project, supported by the Australian Government Department of Health & Ageing began to set up the Milang Community Garden in February 2009.
This project, facilitated through the Milang Old School House Community Centre, developed the garden (and also one at Clayton Bay) as a major part of its promotion of nutritious eating and physical activity. The garden was designed with the participation of local people and school students.
The garden is on grounds owned by the Eastern Fleurieu School. The orchard was planted prior to the Life with Gusto Project and has been incorporated into the garden.
The garden is managed by the Milang Old School House Community Centre in consultation with Eastern Fleurieu School, Milang Campus.
