In 2012, City of Palmerston began working with the community to establish Palmerston's first community garden situated next to Gray Community Hall.
Using funding provided by the Federal Government, and in partnership with an enthusiastic bunch of community volunteers, Harvest Corner Community Garden sowed its first seeds in 2013 and continues to grow under the management of its committee of local residents.
The vision for Harvest Corner Community Garden is to provide a shared gardening space for the Palmerston community that allows members to engage with each other and nature, be active and learn new skills, improving health, wellbeing, and community connectedness.
Harvest Corner Community Garden also provides a clear environmental benefit to the community through increased greening and cooling of an urban space. It offers educational opportunities for sustainable living practices, fostering community engagement, and providing a space for residents to grow their own produce
