This edible forest garden is a public space which brings healthy, fresh produce to the Canberran community. Supporting a sense of connection and through sustainably grown food, Lyneham Commons is totally community run.

In the various patches and plots you’ll find seasonal veggies and fruits growing such as flowering artichokes, dark green zucchinis, rocket, raspberries, fava beans, baby tomatoes and bushels of horseradish. You’ll also find herbs and nuts including rosemary, chicory flowers, hazelnuts, basil, chamomile and thyme. Feelin’ fruity? They’ve planted orchard trees including cherries, apples, figs, plum and mulberry trees.

The community meets monthly for working bees and has a take-what-you-need approach to the fruits of their labour. There are also regular permaculture and horticulture workshops and community events. Local birds also love the garden, with many roseate galahs and sulphur-crested cockatoos calling the nearby trees here home.
