Hidden away just down the road from Hornsby Hospital is one of the suburbs best kept secrets … Edgeworth David Community Garden A group of hardworking volunteers have turned what was an unused and unloved piece of grass into a flourishing eco-garden with everything from bananas to kale. Member for Hornsby Matt Kean dropped in to meet with the committee and see first-hand some of the work that has been done since the garden opened in 2016.
“It was phenomenal to come up the laneway and see this flourishing garden which the committee and volunteers have worked so hard to achieve,” Mr Kean said.
“This group has been able to create an amazing space which gives many in our local community a place to learn how to grow organic produce,” Mr Kean said.
Volunteers have been very resourceful, rescuing, re-claiming and re-using whatever they can, and the garden now boasts two sheds, a green house and several water tanks. Members of the Management Committee,
Helen Browne, Bronwyn O’Rawe, Joe Lyons, Judy Jefferey and Simon Kennedy showed Matt around the garden and talked how locals can get involved.
The Community Garden is open to everyone across the Hornsby district, bringing people together to learn about our natural environment.
