On the 19th and 20th May at Perth City Farm we are Gathering together the largest group of community gardeners in West Australian history. Community gardens are diverse, creative places that grow communities and food as well as model sustainability, and are central to securing food and our future. Over the last year, we have visited community gardens and gathered your ideas through our poll. We  have designed and planned this Gathering with you in mind.


There will be a range of exciting opportunities for participation that include:   stimulating Plenary sessions, action-packed Open Space discussions, challenging Companion Circles, and exploratory sessions to Build Capacities. Community Gardens from across the State have been invited to host an Engagement Activity (click here to register your interest). We'll also have City Farm tours, Skills Sessions and plenty of time to mingle. There will be live music, and (sigh) spaces to stop, stretch and take a breath. There's something for everyone.


This event will enable community gardens to share knowledge, produce, ideas and experiences with others. This is an opportunity to show what community gardens contribute to our world and then plan for action to strengthen and build our network. 


We'll see you there!

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!
