  • 2019 Incorporation

    It grew into a mission… “Feed a growing community”

    We have now incorporated and are supported by a growing community of registered members eager to make a difference in Kensington…

  • 2020 vision

    Now we have a vision… “To sustainably grow vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers, To increase local biodiversity, To create a vibrant meeting place, To encourage well being, To encourage self sustainability and, of course, To feed our growing community”

    But if we are going to achieve our mission, we need to expand, we need to increase our food growing capacity, diversify into other garden areas and bring the community along with us…

  • Future

    But we NEED YOUR HELP TO ACHIEVE THIS...

    Feeding a growing community will take time and we can’t do it alone.
