Kitchen Gardeners

TTG Kitchen Gardeners

Transition Town Guildford’s Kitchen Gardeners is a community group based in Guildford, Western Australia and surrounding suburbs. Our aim is to encourage people to take positive action towards building a more resilient community as a response to the challenges of climate change, peak oil and economic uncertainty, by producing, preparing and preserving our own food at home.

We meet roughly bi-monthly in members’ gardens to share experiences, plants and tools and participate in garden-related activities, providing each other with support and encouragement to grow our own fruit and vegetables, preserve crops, and keep small livestock such as poultry.

Join the Facebook group here or if you want to find out more or are keen to attend, please email Sian at ttguildford@gmail.com
