Landscape Gardening

Vegetable  Gardens

All the Flower & Rose Gardens at Greenway have been developed over the last two years with the assistance of two of our partners, The North Sydney Council and Laing O’Rourke.  The ongoing development and growth of these areas is only achieved because of the dedication of volunteer residents of Greenway who selfishly give so much of their free time to make these gardens a feature of Greenway. Volunteers are always required for this ongoing project. If you are interested in helping please call at the Community Centre or Phone: 02 9922 3129

There are many vegetable and flower gardens at Greenway these are operated by residents at their own expense. These are not community gardens for other residents to harvest when the plants have matured. In most cases the operator of each individual garden is happy to share what he or she has grown with other residents. Please be courteous and ask don’t just take.
