The beautiful Railway Garden was established in October 2020 and is thriving under the care of our fabulous gardening teams. We have friendly groups gardening on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings. The work is light and pleasant and is usually followed by a lovely morning tea.
The garden and adjacent Bocce court are for everyone to enjoy, and members of the public are welcome to pick vegetables and herbs. There are regular information sessions on gardening practices such as pruning, composting, propagation and planting – and gardeners enjoy taking part in Railway House and community events throughout the year.
If you’d like to find out more about how our garden is run, please browse our Garden Technical Manual and Garden Operational Manual.
If you’d like to get involved in the garden, please fill out an enrolment form here and we will get in touch with you to confirm a day and work out what level of involvement would most suit you. We have gardeners who come several times per week and others who come occasionally – all are welcome.
