Gardening enthusiasts of all ages and capabilities are invited to bring along their green thumbs and help us plant a new kitchen garden in honour of International Year of Fruits and Vegetables and National Science Week.

This is a partnership event with the City of Parramatta and Greater Sydney Parklands.

Although these gardens have long been lost you can help us recreate them in a small way by trying your hand at sowing, potting and planting some vegetables this National Science Week.

The garden team will be on hand to help you and can tell you more about how Parramatta was once the centre of food production for the early colony and the science behind a simple veggie patch.

There are multiple session times running over the weekend, book your preferred session time now.


Bookings are essential as attendance numbers will be limited to meet our COVID-19 safety requirements.

Please note that this is an outdoor event and we recommend you dress for the weather. Please check the event webpage for updates.
