Community Gardens

Community gardens are places where people come together to grow fruit and vegetables, enjoy healthy exercise, meet new people and share fresh food. They allow people to connect with nature and participate in their local community.

In Cumberland, we have 3 community gardens run by volunteers:

Wentworthville Community Garden 

73 Fullagar Road
Wentworthville, NSW 2145

Merrylands Community Garden

Orana Lane, Byron Park,
St Ann St, Merrylands NSW 2160

Auburn Community Garden (Friendship Garden)

44A Macquarie Road, Auburn NSW 2144

Free Plant Giveaways

Cumberland is committed to keeping our area clean, green and environmentally sustainable. By planting trees and shrubs in the area, we can help to improve everyone’s health and wellbeing.

Increasing the tree canopy also provides shade, habitats and corridors for wildlife to move from one suburb to another.


Kitchen 2 Gardens Program

This program involves FREE compost bags and vegetable seed giveaways to Cumberland residents. The compost is made from the material collected from household green bins.
