The campus organic garden

Harvesting the SLC garden
Variations of planting in the SLC garden

The campus organic garden was started in 2006 by a group of ANU students and staff. It employs the principles of organic gardening and permaculture and makes use of composting materials from the ANU campus.

The garden boasts multiple vegetable plots, a herb garden, a small orchard, a compost heap, a berry patch, an edible natives bed, a garden shed, an enclosed chicken coup and a wood fired pizza oven.

Getting your hands dirty!

Interested in getting involved in the garden? Come along to regular working held Wednesdays from 3-5 pm and Saturdays from 10am-12pm.

All are welcome. No gardening experience necessary! There is always something to be done and we appreciate new ideas and enthusiasm!

Stay in touch by joining the SLC Garden mailing list or find us on facebook.

Where is the garden?

The SLC garden is located on the ANU campus next to the Canberra Environment Centre at the junction between Lawson Crescent and Lennox Crossing on Acton Peninsula, near the International Sculpture Park and the National Museum of Australia.
