We acknowledge the Whadjuk Noongar People as the Custodians of the land on which the Gathering will be held.

First Nations’ peoples have always cared for Country and only taken what is needed and shared.

We take inspiration from their long standing practices of caring and sharing.

WHAT WE DO

Our aim is to bring all the WA community gardens together in May 2018 to feed our roots and share knowledge to build a stronger and connected community.

ABOUT US
The WA Community Garden Network (WACGN) is an informal network of WA community gardens and their supporters. Established in 2004, the network has played a significant role in bringing together people involved in community gardens to share ideas and skills, work collaboratively and provide a voice for the community garden sector in WA.

 

The WA Community Garden Gathering 2018 Committee first met in May 2017 in North Perth. The Committee meets regularly (every 2 weeks) with three working groups; Planning, Engagement and Strategic Direction, busily working to bring to fruition an event with a difference. Our meetings often run late into the night as we discuss, debate and imagine this event together. We are excited and hope you will be too!
