Community Garden

A Community Garden is just starting up, on private land in a sunny, convenient part of Fern Tree. A local family has generously offered some of their front yard for the community to share. If you would like to be involved in a friendly communal garden, please send a message to secretary@ferntree.tas.au and we can put you in contact with the neighbours involved. At this point the garden is very much in the formative stages.
