To become involved in the Thirroul Community Garden just come along to a gardening session (Tuesday afternoons and Sunday mornings). You will need to become a financial member after 3 sessions, which enables you to keep up with all that is going on and provides insurance cover.

 Information for New Members

You may visit the garden up to three times, but if you wish to participate in regular working bees and take part in garden design, planning, maintenance and harvesting, you must join our group.

Membership of the Thirroul Community Garden costs the following per year (1 July – 30 June)

  • $40 per adult full rate
  • $60 family rate (includes 2 adults)
  • $25 per adult concession rate

Come along to any working bee and talk to us about membership.

Working Bees:

– rights and responsibilities

– safety

– arriving on site – what to do, signing on, check the board… site coordinators

– sharing produce

Come down to our Garden and get involved.

* We meet every Sunday 9.30am , and Tuesday afternoon (time varies) at our Garden ‘High St Reserve’ on the cnr of Lawrence Hargrave Dr and High St in Thirroul.

* A Garden Representative will be there to meet new and current members wanting to work together for a few hours.

* There is often a schedule of jobs each Tuesday and Sunday, so please be ready to receive instruction from a Garden Representative. The Thirroul Garden is a shared plot design, so we work together, and share the harvested produce.

  1. Hi there how does the garden work – if one contributes with a fee and with gardening (which I love) are entitled to use the produce of the garden? Is it shared? Or do we keep what we plant?
