THE Duncraig Edible Garden is growing strong four years after its official opening.

The once bare concrete circle in the forecourt of Duncraig Public Library is now full of many different edible plants and there are fruit trees on the slope north of the circle and a verge garden to the south as well wicking beds.

Following a two-year pilot phase, the first community garden on public space in the City of Joondalup now operates as an independent incorporated organisation.

It hosts workshops on popular gardening and sustainability, including one in September on ‘Chooks in the city’ and another about bees and “All things buzzy, waxy and sweet”.

The site in 2014.

The next workshop, ‘Planning in your garden’, will be on Saturday, October 27 from 10am, and on November 24, Uncle Tom Little will talk about Landcare and spirituality.

On December 8, members will meet from 9am, then from 9.30am there will be a community celebration open to the public with free craft projects and foods for sale.

Members meet every Saturday to work in the garden, share harvest and morning tea.
