Learn what and how to grow in the sub-tropics ...


Yandina Community Gardens is a permaculture community garden, where keen gardeners can learn through hands-on volunteering and educational programmes and tours, held on the first Saturday of every month.

So, what exactly is a permaculture garden?

The term 'permaculture' was coined in the seventies and has since then, become a global movement, providing design solutions for every climate, landscape and culture. Permaculture draws insights from traditional cultures, from modern sciences and from personal observations of nature, to collect new and old ways of providing for human needs that are not only sustainable but regenerative. The aim is to create edible ecosystems.

The aim of permaculture is to create edible ecosystems


For some, permaculture means a backyard garden that supplies an abundance of organically produced food all year round, for relatively little effort.

To introduce you to their very own permaculture community garden and as we head into Summer, the next Garden Tour to be hosted by Yandina Community Gardens is to be held on Saturday 3 October. If you are keen to learn more about what to grow or how to grow your garden in the sub-tropics, then this 1 to 1.5 hour Garden Tour is your essential 'go-to' event.
Wannabe green thumbs will get to see and learn from in action permaculture principles and design ideas and might learn a trick or two to create an edible ecosystem at home. Everyone is welcome to join in at this very informative and inspiring Garden Tour - it's literally a case of 'have your nature and eat it too'!
