In 2006, the school's Community Advisory Group made a decision to establish a community garden and mobilised a working party consisting of students, school staff, parents and members of the community.  By April 2007 that dream became a reality, thanks to a lot of committment, work and funds generously provided by Housing SA, Community BenefitSA and the City of Onkaparinga.


Our Vision is achieved in the following ways:

  • Encouraging connections with others, sharing communal space with people with varying abilities and similar interests.

  • Promoting care of the environment through bio-dynamic/chemical free gardening and companion planting.

  • Promoting a healthy community through sharing knowledge and being involved in outdoor physical activity and healthy eating.

  • Promoting self sufficient living.
Noarlunga Community Gardens



The garden is managed by the Community Garden Management Committee which is a sub committee of the Governing Council. Members include parents from the school, interested community members and community workers.

Meetings are held monthly on Mondays from 9am to 10am in the Community Room (Room 3).
