Our peaceful community garden on Ironcliffe Rd, Penguin. Home of the Organic and Sustainable Living Festival. This is the Headquarters of the North West Environment Centre.  We deliver a great range of workshops and events at this venue. It is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 3pm, and on Wednesdays we have a working bee from 10am to 12pm, followed by a shared lunch.

Wynyard Community Food Collaboration

This project aims to firstly provide practical opportunities for low socio-economic families, disabled persons, and unemployed in the Wynyard area to gain the skills and confidence to grow their own vegetables and to cook and/or preserve fresh fruits and vegetables.
The second aim is to engage these groups and others in the CENTs project to increase accessibility of fresh food, and thirdly to establish a Neighbourhood Supported Agriculture initiative where “backyard growers” join together to supply healthy,nutritious, local food to predominantly low income people in the form of produce boxes.

Winter Spring Vegetable Production

This project aims to encourage winter and spring production by researching varieties of vegetables that can be successfully grown in Tasmania over winter and spring and provide education and training for small to medium sized market gardeners on technologies such as protected cropping and polytunnel preparation. It will include a demonstration garden at the NWEC organic garden at Penguin.
