The Denmark Community Garden is operated by Green Skills in collaboration with the Denmark CRC and was opened in March 2019. The Garden is conveniently and prominently located in the heart of Denmark behind the Morgan Richardson Centre (old Denmark hospital site) which is now the Denmark Community Resource Centre. It is in easy walking distance of many residents in social housing and retirement villages and designed to be wheelchair accessible and family-friendly.
The garden is a sustainable, organic, community-based food garden which encourages its members and local South Coast residents to participate more actively in community life, connect with the earth, grow fresh garden produce, and enjoy doing all this in company with others in the community. Here community gardeners can develop and try out new horticulture and food gardening skills and help give back to Denmark by contributing to this Community Garden.
The Denmark Community Garden is inclusive and accessible, holding regular free workshops and events for learning new gardening skills. Over 80 south coast residents have actively joined in workshops and events since this community garden was launched in March 2019.
