St James Road Reserve Shared Garden


In the late 2000s a group of local neighbours started a shared garden along the verge at the back of the Bondi Junction Bus Depot along St James Road. In 2021 this group was re-established with some of the original members and new residents that recently moved into the area.

The shared garden is an oasis of nature and play that is already an amazing meeting place and community hub. Our community garden is for young and old to meet and delight in establishing, growing and maintaining a shared garden and recreational facility: a place for intergenerational learning, meeting people and connecting with nature, for greater health and wellbeing, where artistic horticultural and culinary expressions flourish.

The shared garden situated on the northern and southern end of St James Road Reserve, includes native plants, fruit trees, planter boxes with herbs and vegetables and a productive compost system.

Shared Garden Team: Howard, Bettina, Chloe, Kirsten, Sonya, Catharine, Zoe, Sandra, Mel, Joseph and Roy.

Working Bee Schedule: Monthly on Saturday or Sunday.
