Community Garden Group


Meet someone new with a cuppa in the garden each Wednesday at 1pm.

Whether you have your own gardening tips and tricks, or you can not tell the difference between a weed and seed, then the Sale Neighbourhood House community garden is the place for you. Gardening has many health benefits such as feelings of empowerment, connection and creative calm.

Come along to the house and explore a weekly planner of activities in the garden.

Community Garden Centre


Sale Neighbourhood Houses’ Community Garden Centre provides an opportunity to Sale and surrounds, with a focus on community connectedness, lifelong learning, sharing, and an increase of social skills and networking abilities.

Our Garden Centre provides various seasonal fruit and vegetables when available for community members to help themselves to – in addition to propagated plants available at a reasonable price. Our garden is also open to seed exchange and is managed and maintained by community members who show leadership with their skills and knowledge.


Gardening Group


Share our lovely community garden. Gardening is a great way to meet new people, unwind, grow beautiful fresh produce, and support good health. Volunteers to help maintain our garden space and grow fresh produce would be greatly appreciated. If you have a passion for gardening, get in touch. You don’t have to stay for the whole time, come in and stay as long as you can/would like. 

Community Garden


Weekly event at Rosedale Community House.

Includes a monthly food swap on the first day of the month – if you grow it, cultivate it, create it, preserve it, strike it, make it, bake it…. (baked and bottled goods must have ingredients list, name and phone number on label)… bring it and enjoy the many other items you could take.

Community Garden open 24/7


Feel free to ‘grab a bag’ from the book case in Wurruk to get some ingredients from the garden for dinner.

The Wurruk Community Garden beds were generously funded by Connect Well – East Gippsland + Wellington.

The Horticultural team from TAFE Gippsland did a fantastic job of building the garden beds
