Sustainable Food

Community gardens are recognised worldwide as a great way to grow food, improve health, meet people, and cultivate vibrant communities. Our aim is to keep the garden open for knowledge exchange and permaculture and organic gardening techniques.

The Garden

We are a community garden located at Charles Darwin University Casuarina Campus on a two acre site on Lakeside Drive in Alawa. The garden is driven by a dedicated team of volunteers and supported by the Office of Community Engagement at CDU.

Get Involved

Everyone is welcome to join us as we build the Lakeside Drive Community Garden. There are many ways to get involved, whether you like to plant trees, pick tropical greens, plan events, design and build garden structures - there is something for everyone.

Our vision is for Lakeside Drive Community Garden to be a welcoming space where all members of the community come together to share skills, vegies and smiles. Collectively we hope to create a thriving, healthy centre for producing food, knowledge and inspiration based on permaculture ethics, principles and design.
