Yinnar and District Community Garden




The opportunity for this community garden arose from funding provided by the Helen Macpherson Smith Bushfire Grants Fund. ARC Yinnar, who run an artist resource from the old butter factory, provided the land in a formally unused space at the back of their building.

The garden is designed to represent a Giant Flower with five large and four smaller petals. Initially conceived by Karen Sutherland, the final design was produced by local Sari Anderson and the result is a beautiful but practical space. The centre of the garden is a designated amphitheatre where art work can be displayed or outdoor performances held.

Eight raised vegetable beds of different heights have been built as well as a number of large materials and composting bays. Rainwater tanks, holding more than 60 000 litres of water ensure a secure water supply throughout the driest of summers.

Review:


A nice little spot to visit next to a playground, picnic tables and water tap. There are circular paths with a mosaic in the middle. Next to the garden is a shelter with seats and an unshaded table.
