Annual Report 2022-2023

Looking Forward

Given that major structural projects have been completed in the garden – the beds, notice board, swale, native trees, fruit tree grove, arches, recycling hub and shed – we can now focus on growing

produce and events.

With the prime growing season around the corner, we have already started planning planting for the coming months. With the help of our volunteers, we will also use our AGM to prioritise and plan forthcoming garden activities. Amongst the ideas shared to date, native bees continue to be something we’d like to add to the garden, as well as a large sign that explains our vision and garden values.

We have had another successful and fruitful year in the garden, which has fostered important relationships in the garden. We can’t wait to see what 2024 has in store for us!

And again, thank you to all the volunteers who make this garden happen.

Looking Ahead 

"As we look towards the next 12 months, there is a lot to do on the horizon.

The Committee’s priorities are to finish the drainage swale that will accompany the native plants. We will also continue to implement projects which have recently received grant funding: a nursery and potting table and watering system. Following this, we will look towards planning and fundraising for the last few garden beds to fill the space between the middle of the garden and the shed.

We will also continue to work closely with the Brisbane City Council, including the local Walter Taylor Ward Office to find a new solution for our compost hub which has been closed since the floods. We will also work with the local Ward Office to continue to find opportunities for the garden to expand.

We will continue to find new ways to be sustainable and problem-solve common sustainability challenges, such as our recent installation of a Containers for Change bin. 

In the next year, we also hope to host our second workshop and more informal events like our birthday party potluck.

Most of all, I look forward to enjoying each other's company in the garden, charting new territory in terms of growing plants we haven’t tried, brainstorming new ideas and sharing in the ups and downs of our everyday lives.

The garden has come so far since its inception in 2019, and we’ve done a great job together."

Looking Ahead 

"As we turn to the future, there’s only more growth in store for the community garden. In this next year, we hope to build more garden beds and undertake further aesthetic and greening works such as installing sandstone blocks, a notice board, arches, native plant borders and dry creek bed swales – all of which are outlined in our master plan. 

We hope to grow even more to share with community, and continue to operate the compost hub which is positively at full capacity. We will continue to find new ways to be sustainable and problem solve common sustainability challenges, such as recycling bread tags or harvesting worm juice to condition our soil. 

In the next year, we also hope to start making steps towards a schedule of interactive events and workshops to expand education opportunities. 

Above all else I hope we can continue to enjoy our time together in the garden, getting our hands dirty, learning more and sharing in the ups and down of our everyday lives. I’m incredibly proud and grateful for everything the garden has achieved and I can’t wait to see where we end up in 1, 5 and 10 year’s time."
