Singing in a choir is a wonderful way to connect with yourself and others. It’s also a great way to improve memory and look after your emotional, mental, social and physical health. You can’t sing and be stressed at the same time. Singing is like meditation as when you are singing you are completely present in the here and now.

Experience the benefits of singing with others as you learn how to sing songs from a variety of genres including; gospel, folk, popular music and indigenous music from around the world. Sing like no one is listening and love it! Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary!

Some of the plots are there for communal use. Local schools and other organisations make use of them, the rest are allocated to individuals who wish to tend their own plot. 

Throughout the year the garden hosts community events and education activities in conjunction with like-minded organisations such as Melbourne Inner Northwest Transition Initiative (MINTI) and My Smart Garden
