About SLCG

The St Lucia Community Garden operates from Lex Ord Park South, near the St Lucia Golf Links.

This nonprofit community-based, membership-funded organisation was incorporated in mid 2022 to manage the community garden. St Lucia Community Garden Inc was incorporated on Friday 28 May 2021.

As well as running the Community Garden, the SLCG’s members and volunteers run a BCC Community Compost Hub (so locals can turn their organic kitchen scraps and waste into rich and fertile compost rather than landfill), and a deposit container collection service. The first largely replaces expensive commercial fertilizers in the Community Garden, the second brings in useful cash to help support the CG’s operation.
