Vasili's Community Garden Group Session Photo

Doncaster Hill Community Garden

Located on the site of the old Doncaster Kindergarten and Child Health Care Centre, the Doncaster Hill Community Garden is a new way of visualising what a community space can look like.

Comprising of 24 temporary garden beds, the site is more a ‘shared backyard’ rather than your traditional plot garden. There are no fences, locked gates or private plots. The garden is open to all and welcomes anyone with a passion for growing food, meeting neighbours and volunteering.

While most of the produce gets donated to local charities and community food banks, volunteers are able to get involved in a host of fun and interesting activities including pesto making, picnics and gardening skills sessions that make the most out of our produce.  

The garden gets a lot of help from children too, with kids from the local primary school, kindergarten and child care centre all lending a hand to plant, water and tend the garden.

Visit from Vasili’s Garden

The Doncaster Hill Community Garden recently had a visit by Vasili of the TV show Vasili’s Garden. Vasili (pictured above with community garden volunteers) spent a few hours with our Home Harvest team to teach them how to grow fresh organic home grown food without the use of chemicals.
