If you’ve ever heard of Joe’s Connected Garden and wondered what it was like, then coming up is your chance to visit one of the most fascinating gardens you’ll ever see – and it’s based in Playford! Come and see a community garden of a different kind, located in Elizabeth Grove, where neighbours have joined together to link their gardens and share the harvests.
Joe's Connected Garden is not just about growing food, but creating community and fostering respect for the earth and each other.Jess Bamford, a garden member, said that with over 400 varieties of fruit trees, and plenty of vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, chickens and ducks - there's something for everyone.
“Each day there will be activities/talks for adults and children, including edible weed walks, fruit-tree planting/pruning, propagation for kids and more,” Jess said.
The open garden will be held on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 of February, from 10am to 4.30pm, at 4 Argent Street, Elizabeth Grove.
Admission is $8 ($6 concession cards) and free entry for children, with gate proceeds donated to charities.
Head along and be inspired to grow your own food and community.
