Living Green @ FPCC

FPCC living green

Together we share our environment and resources.

Community orchard

Did you know that we have a free community orchard in the northern park near Fisher Street? There is a variety of fruit trees and you are most welcome to help yourself to some when there is delicious fruit ready for picking. While there, take some time to look at our Aboriginal Totem Poles.

Unley Gardeners Plant Rescue Group

We would love your unwanted plants. Unley Gardeners Plant Rescue is a not-for-profit group, seeking donations of good quality plants to revitalise and sell at our sales. Rare and different plants that discerning gardeners would find interesting (camellias, hibiscus, roses, etc) as well as unwanted 'but much loved' pot plants and hanging baskets. 

The group formed in 2003 and has since raised nearly $135,000 for charity from the sales. We are now located at the rear of Fullarton Park Community Centre where the plants can be delivered. We can collect plants in the Unley area by arrangement. If you are downsizing your garden, moving to a new house or into residential care and want your plants to go to a good home while helping charity, please contact us.

For more information contact Alice 0419 808 635 or Bev 0408 437 348. Follow us on Facebook for updates and dates for plant sales.

Recycling at Fullarton

Recycle your batteries, bread tags and small electronics (phones, laptops, keyboards, etc) at the Centre. Collection bins located in the front foyer. Available during office hours.

Fun in the park

We have a table tennis table located in the playground area. There should be paddles and balls located under the table; if not, please let us know and we will give you some.

There are two chess tables located next to the art studio for your enjoyment. Should you wish to play chess and don't have a set, you can borrow one from the office during office hours, otherwise feel free to come and play anytime.

The Red Room

This is a community lounge where you can drop in and meet friends, chat, have a coffee, read, or just relax.

Available on various days and times depending on use of the room. If the room isn't available there are tables and chairs in the foyer.

Cost: Free

For further information, contact the Centre, phone 8372 5180.

Book Nook

We have a book nook in Fullarton Park. Books for all ages, the titles are constantly turning over, topped up by residents. Keep checking this nook for good reads. 

Located at the front of the Centre, near the driveway.

Donations are always welcome, just pop them in the book nook.

Readers' Lounge - Advisory Service

Do you love books? Pop into our Readers' Advisory Service and chat to our staff and volunteers. They know lots about reading and will help you order your next read online through Unley Libraries. You can collect and deposit books here and there is a drop-in library where you can borrow books off the shelf and return them when you've read them.

Tuesdays 12.30 - 3pm.

Book clubs

We host two book clubs at Fullarton Park Community Centre in the Readers Advisory Room.
The Tuesday Book Club meet on second Tuesdays each month (Tuesday to December).
The Thursday Book Club meets on last Thursdays each month (February to November).
