Welcome to the Randwick Community Organic Garden
 
RCOG is a community of gardeners interested in working towards a sustainable future by growing fresh organic produce and plants, learning about organic gardening and permaculture techniques, sharing skills and knowledge with the local community and cultivating the health of soil, plants, wildlife, people and community.
 
We don't use pesticides or herbicides, we create our own composts and collect our own rainwater. We share the fruits and vegetables of the communal gardens and tend our own plots. 
 
The garden is situated in Paine Reserve, corner Rainbow and Botany Streets, Randwick, Sydney (map).

We have a strong organic gardening community of more than 80 members. Our present motto is: 'He who plants a garden, plants happiness'.
The garden holds its monthly working bee every third Sunday of the month (10 am in winter and 9 am in the daylight saving months). Everyone is very welcome to come and give us a hand!
