GARDEN 1: Henley Community Garden - tickets and maps - Raymond Street, Henley Beach 

A remarkable community garden – outstanding, orderly and vibrant! The many wicking beds are beautifully maintained by enthusiastic members, who together have planted an orchard, built composting bays and communal spaces where they can enjoy interactive activities. The raised beds are crammed with healthy edibles and a selection of flowering plants to attract pollinating insects, but this garden is more than a productive hub - lively mosaics and crafty objects add colour and charm. There are a frog pond, budgies and bees, while a large mural featuring chooks embellishes the home of the very spoilt resident hens. Old shipping containers have been repurposed as storage space, there is a green house, solar panels, water tanks and plenty of compost bays.

A deck for communal events was creatively constructed from timbers salvaged when the Grange jetty was rebuilt.

An inspirational, colourful and very friendly community garden!

GARDEN 2: Chester Street Garden

Diversity and interest in a small space! A front yard is planted with mainly coastal natives, including a magnificent banksia. The productive courtyard and back garden feature fruit trees and Mediterranean plantings. Food and garden waste are processed in worm farms and in the chook house with a pool view!

GARDEN 3: Henley on Sea

A delightful little seaside garden packed with salt tolerant coastal plants in the ground and in an eclectic collection of pots. Imaginative garden sculptures, colourful mosaics and water features add interest and a touch of whimsy.

GARDEN 4: Grevilleaville

The stars of this small garden are several stunning standard grevilleas underplanted with shrubs and ground covers. Dense plantings of bromeliads, bamboo, frangipani and an elegant water feature give the garden a touch of the tropics.

GARDEN 5: Coast Haven

An attractive garden with productive and ornamental planting. Wicking beds at the front grow vegetables and herbs, while the back garden is for entertaining, with a pool and alfresco eating areas.

GARDEN 6: Cottage Corner

A cottage style garden with edible plants popped in amongst colourful dahlias, zinnias, frangipani, hibiscus, bougainvillea and inherited roses. Fruit trees and a very successful bed of raspberries provide an abundance of fruit. 

Henley and Grange Arts Society (HAGAS)

HAGAS captures community creativity and colour on canvas, clay, ceramics and glass. Members have produced unique pieces featuring flowers, foliage and gardens. Varying from nostalgic to classic, contemporary, crafty, bright and definitely quirky, with all pieces for sale.
