How we started
Cooper Park Community Garden (CPCG) began in 2017 when a group of local would-be gardeners worked together with Woollahra Council to build a garden in a sunny corner of Cooper Park based on sustainable, organic principles in harmony with the nature of the local area.
Our community garden thanks:
The founding members: Torsten Blackwood, Michelle Falstein, Virginia Savage, Debbie Kertesz and the late Ruth Osen for their vision and work in establishing the garden.
Bunnings Rose Bay (and member Geoff Whytcross) for donating garden tools and supplies. We value your support as we grow.
