The Ballarat Community Garden acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land we live and work on, the Wadawurrung and Dja Dja Wurrung People, and recognises their continuing connection to the land and waterways. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present, and emerging and extend this to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
Since 2004, the Ballarat Community Garden is an invaluable community asset and is one of the largest and most successful regional community gardens in Victoria.
Approximately 75 beds have been built plus 4 raised beds and 6 vegetable boxes.
We aspire to be a place where people can Grow, Learn and Connect.
We are a not for profit organisation, promoting organic and sustainable gardening practices for the benefit, enjoyment and education to our members and associates.
The BCG facilitates and assists members to maintain and enjoy their garden beds.
The wider community is welcomed to events and provides an associate membership to encourage the community to be part of the garden’s broader activities and connect with other people with an interest in community gardening.
