Community Garden

Shearwater's community garden is where residents of all ages gather to grow their own fruit, herbs, and vegetables. It's here where families can use their own two hands to contribute to a sense of community and connect with the environment.

Community Garden Guidelines

As of May 2023 there are no available beds.   

Don't have a bed this season? Here's how you can contribute:

  • Join the Green Thumbs Garden Club!  Are you looking to develop your green thumb? Experienced gardeners and beginners will love the Green Thumbs Garden Club. If getting your hands dirty is not for you, still meet with us monthly to share tips, strategies, and all about gardening. To find out more, email
  • Keep an eye on our Community Calendar for our Garden Workshops. These workshops are open to all residents, whether or not you have a garden bed reserved.
  • Add your food scraps and yard waste to the community compost bin. Organic material is always needed and welcomed to create rich compost for all to use. Learn how to compost using our community compost bin.
  • Enjoy fruit from the four community citrus trees. These trees are available for all residents to enjoy, but please make sure the fruit is ripe before picking, and always share with your neighbors!
At no time should you pick from a garden bed that you have not reserved.
