Join an environmental program that makes a difference
Bushcare Volunteer Program
Put down roots in your local community! Add colour and character to your street by creating your own Verge Garden.
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:
73 Fullagar Road
Wentworthville, NSW 2145
Orana Lane, Byron Park,
St Ann St, Merrylands NSW 2160
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.
Cumberland encourages residents to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Throughout the year, we host events to teach you how to live more sustainably. Simply check Council’s What’s On section regularly.
