If your windowsill just isn’t cutting it and pesticide rumours are ruining your salad, consider joining your local community garden. Ultimo Community Garden invites locals to pay $20 to harvest their own produce alongside their neighbours. Located in McKee Street Park, members of the public are free to admire the garden, and perhaps get some ideas, but don’t touch; community gardens are a Members Only affair. Become a Garden Member and revel in the potential such a title has to make you sound more interesting, like fertiliser to the garden of your life. Seasoned gardeners are welcome, but if you don’t know a thing about gardening, there’s space for learning too.
