The Urban Orchard is a place to celebrate the importance of growing fresh, healthy food where we live.
Once a neglected area on the rooftop of a car park, the Urban Orchard is now the perfect spot to eat lunch and meet up with friends. It’s also a new destination for events and activities in the Perth Cultural Centre.
In the garden beds you will find fruit, vegetables, herbs and companion plants. The planter boxes are made from recycled waste from other parts of the building works, the plants are managed organically and will be harvested and planted seasonally. This is the embodiment of sustainable community gardening and is a resource for all.
The orchard will provide nutritious and tasty crops throughout the year and you can be involved in community planting, harvesting and education events.
