Heritage Forest Community Garden
The Heritage Forest Community Garden (HFCG) is a productive community garden with plots and raised garden beds, compost bays, a worm farm, a central outbuilding for garden tools and a participants’ shelter. Located in the Heritage Forest, the HFCG is surrounded by serene parklands.
The vision of the Heritage Forest Community Garden (HFCG) is to create opportunities for migrants and local Tasmanians to grow and have secure access to fresh produce, nurture and share important life skills, while benefiting from onsite training and social enterprise opportunities.
The garden was officially completed and launched in April 2016. The Operational Committee, now led by Youth Futures, oversees the ongoing garden management, and garden volunteer program. Future plans include delivering horticultural training, exploring social enterprise opportunities, open garden days and market stalls.
