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.

The different areas

Insect hotel: To attract beneficial insects to the gardens
STAPS community food share: A place where anyone in the community can leave excess produce, seeds and plants to share with others
Fruit orchard & food forest: We grow many different fruit trees and underneath we have a forest of edible, medicinal and pollinator friendly plants
