Living green @ CPCC

Living green at Clarence Park Community Centre

Together we share our environment and resources.

Biodiversity garden

Our biodiversity garden is in the grounds around our 'House Next Door'. Discover the local native species of the Black Forest area and how they can create a charming garden in suburbia.

Visitors are welcome at the garden during daylight hours and can follow our walking trail.

For more information, phone 8293 8166.

Grow Free share table

Come to our produce share table, with gifts from the earth, grown by the community for the community. They are for giving and taking. Organic fruit, vegetables, herbs and seedlings.

Surplus home-grown produce is always welcome.

Drop in and see what is on the table.

Clarence Park Food Co-op

Volunteers run the food co-operative. The Co-op sells nuts, dried fruit, grains, legumes, seeds, honey and more at low cost.

Monday to Wednesday and Saturdays, 10.30am - 12.30pm

During the school holidays, the co-op only opens on Saturdays.

Cost: $1 for life membership.

For more information, contact Ashley 8297 6249.

Bag the bags!

Let's keep that not-so-fantastic plastic out of our waterways and landfill! Come and join this working bee to make lightweight reusable bags to replace single-use bags for fruit, vegetables and all your shopping.

If you are a sewer bring your machine; if not, there are lots of tasks for non-sewers such as pinning, cutting and threading drawstrings. Another aim of the group is to repurpose fabric such as curtains purchased from secondhand shops. Proceeds from bag sales are donated to charities.

Wednesday mornings, fortnightly,  10am - 12noon in the Black Forest Room. 

For more information, contact Janet 0455 454 777 or email

All welcome.
