Tecoma Community Garden

The Tecoma Community Garden was established in 1983 on land owned by the Yarra Ranges Council, in a lovely sunny spot behind Sherbrooke Cottage.  The day-to-day management of the ‘non-chemical’ garden is overseen by a committee of current garden members who have paid a one-off joining fee and an annual fee for a full or half plot. There is 18 plots, each approximately 8×4 meters.  There is also a shared orchard, general flower garden/pollinator areas and a compost bin system which is managed by all plot holders.

A food share cupboard has recently been added and surplus food is also delivered by individual members to Food is Free Tecoma.

Garden opening times: The garden is open when any garden member is present, which can be anytime during daylight hours. Children are welcome and encouraged to come to the garden with their family member/s. 

Other Activities: Working bees are held on the last weekend of each month on alternating Saturdays and Sundays, 9.30-12.00pm followed by a shared morning tea. Other social activities include an end of year celebration.

New Members: There are usually some vacant plots available for new members.

For further information and requests for plots: contact Ros on 0457297115 or Raffy on 0418533972
