Pakenham Community Garden

The Pakenham Community Garden is a public food and demonstration garden run by volunteers.

The garden has been established for over 8 years, covering approximately 350 square meters and grows nearly 100 different varieties of edible plants, including salad greens, vegetables, herbs, fruit, companion, butterfly and insect attracting plants.

The Garden is open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and offers local residents a safe and fun place of learning and a place for reflection which brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to build strong community networks across the neighbourhoods of Pakenham.

As of November 2018, the gardening group has been working hard to re-envision and re-vamp the garden into a space which will focus be Education, Inclusion and Sustainability.

Among the many features that the new garden will offfer, there will be a Compost Hub, a Sensory Play garden with a shade structure for children and families, a World Food Garden as well as garden beds and group seating suitable for wheelchair users.
