The Kensington Community Garden is located in Westbourne Rd, on the corner of Cornish Lane and funded by the Melbourne City Council.

The gardens provide the opportunity for local residents to grow herbs and vegetables for personal use. The gardens also provide a perfect community space for people to come together and socialise. Plots, when available, are allocated to 3031 residents on the wait list.

In December 2016 the Association was awarded a grant for a Community Garden project. Local resident and KA member Jacquie van Heerden has produced a Discussion Paper on the objectives an proposed activities for a KA Community Garden Group. Check it out the revised ‘Kensington Association Community Gardening Group Statement of proposed activities’ here.
