City of Unley Grant
November 2021

The Fern Avenue Community Garden gratefully acknowledges the receipt of a grant from the City of Unley allowing the garden to install two raised garden beds. These raised beds enable older garden members to maintain their involvement in gardening activities,

Due to the restrictions and risks associated with COVID an Open Day was not held in 2021. The annual Open Day will return on Sunday October 31 2022.

We look forward to welcoming visitors to our garden at that time.



Each year, the committee overseeing the work of the Fern Avenue Community Garden awards the Golden Spade Award to a member of the garden who is not a Committee member. The recipient is the person who has significantly contributed to furthering the goals of the garden.


The 2021 Golden Spade recipient is Mick Healy, for the time he has contributed to many projects including the rejuvenated succulent frame, espaliering of fruit trees, assistance with the herb garden construction and other help as needed.


The 2020 recipient was Janet Farrall.
