STAPS Community Garden

Where pollinators, plants and people come together!

Plants: Edible, medicinal, bush tucker, native, indigenous, pollinator attracting.

Indigenous plants are well adapted to the soils, topography and climate of our local area – they are drought tolerant which means we save water. Indigenous species also help to maintain the ecological balance of our local ecosystem. 

Pollinators: Bees, Butterflies and Insects including; beetles, wasps, ants and flies are all pollinators.

Habitat: For wildlife including; birds, lizards, mammals and insects.
