Yankalilla Community Garden

Over the last two years a group of passionate community members have been working in collaboration with the Fleurieu Environment Centre and District Council of Yankalilla to bring to life the opportunity of establishing a community garden in the Yankalilla Youth Park. In late 2023 we received approval and a small budget of funds for Council to start the community garden. The goals of the garden include it to be a shared space, open to all community members, with the aim of providing the community with a range of health & wellbeing benefits and sustainable living education opportunities. The garden has been a labor of love for the volunteers who have persisted through the process of seeking approval and consulting the community on their vison for the space. The initial budget provided by the council has allowed for the foundations of the garden to be established and we are now seeking further funding to really get the garden to the point of a functional and flourishing resource for the whole community. Funding for many of the basic martials needed for the garden were not included in the budget provided by the Yankalilla Council and we are now seeking funding from other avenues. We have had excellent community support for this project so far with over 45 people attending our first information session about the garden and almost 30 people registering as volunteers already.
