Garden Links

There are many great gardening resources on the internet. Here are just a few.

Community Gardens WA

The WA Community Garden Network (WACGN) is an informal network of WA community gardens and their supporters. Established in 2004, the network has played a significant role in bringing together people involved in community gardens to share ideas and skills, work collaboratively and provide a voice for the community garden sector in WA.

Gardenate

Gardenate is an Australian website that is intended to make it easier to keep your kitchen garden growing and producing. Each month the home page lists what you can plant now in your climate zone, and what to prepare for next month.

It also has a glossary of just about every vegetable and herb you are ever likely to grow and plenty of tips and comments.

The Role of Community Gardens in Sustaining Healthy Communities

This is an interesting study, carried out by UNSW, focussing on a community garden scheme in a large high-rise public housing estate in Sydney’s inner west.The garden studied was part of an urban renewal program designed to ameliorate ongoing social problems on the estate.

The research found that this project resulted in a broad range of positive physical and psychological well-being outcomes for the public housing tenants.
