Dig It! Royal Oak Organic Garden
The Dig It! Royal Oak Organic Garden was established in 1982. Today, this thriving community hub showcases organic and permaculture gardening practices to local schools, community groups and residents.
We host a friendly and relaxed morning tea at the garden every Thursday at 10.30am. Come for a visit and find out more about how you can get involved and then take a tour in our garden. Everyone is welcome!
Ways to Get Involved
There are a number of different ways you can get involved with the Dig It! community, depending on where your interests lie.
Adopt a Plot
You can adopt a garden bed to grow your own organic produce. Whether you’re a complete novice or have a serious green thumb, the Dig It! team are on-hand with both advice and support.
We welcome all people, including people who identify as having an impairment or who experience mental illness. As a result, Dig It! is a diverse, vibrant and welcoming community to be a part of.
All our volunteers are important partners in the overall running of the garden. This can include assisting with the maintenance of the wider site, helping deliver events or providing administrative support.
Attend a Workshop
We hold a regular series of workshops throughout the year dedicated to permaculture, sustainability and health and wellbeing.
Details of what’s coming up can be found on our blog or Facebook page.
Take a Tour
We welcome schools, community groups and other organisations who would like to visit our gardens. Whether you’d like to learn more about how the gardens operate, organic gardening or see our accessible garden showcased, we can tailor a tour to suit your interests.
Contact our Gardens Supervisor to find out more.
Support our Work
Dig It! is lucky enough to have the financial backing of CCS Disability Action, one-off support from grants and generous donations from people whose lives have been impacted by the garden community. If you would like to contribute to keep this free community resource running, we would love to hear from you.
