Hugo Reserve is owned by the City and is classified as a public open space. In order to redirect the space we are required to consult with the local community and gain Council approval.

We would like to hear your ideas for turning this important space into a welcoming and attractive community garden.

Come along to a discussion at the Redfern Community Centre, 29-53 Hugo Street, Redfern on Saturday, 27 August 2011.

Please visit us between 10.30am and 12.30pm for light refreshments and to talk to our team.

This will be an opportunity to learn more about the proposed community garden and have your say.

The City currently has 15 community gardens run by local residents and groups..  They are used for growing herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruit and for conserving rare plants and seeds.

These popular gardens provide many benefits, including the opportunity to:

  • Demonstrate innovative and practical ways to reuse building materials
  • Learn how to grow your own fresh, organic food and get hands-on gardening experience;  and
  • Meet other people and get involved to improve your local area.
