Community Garden & Composting

The Addison Road Community Garden is an un-gated community garden located in the grounds of the Addison Road Community Centre.

It is a well established community garden and provides urban food production and sustainable community initiatives for Marrickville residents. The garden provides opportunities to grow food locally, share knowledge and interact with diverse community members in a safe environment. 

The garden is 100% run by volunteers. Head to the garden website for more info and contact details.

Hobo Gro and The Addison Road Community Centre Organisation are working in partnership at the Community Compost site. Hobo Gro is an urban collective formed from a learning community based on ecologically sustainable practice. Their motto is “Helping Others Build Opportunity”.
