The Habitat

Volunteers harvesting garlic

Location: Santa Rosa Park, Quarry Road, Ryde.

The Habitat is a community food garden and a community native plant nursery that specialises in growing plants native to the Ryde area. 

The Habitat has been established on land provided by the City of Ryde, generously assisted by a grant from the NSW State Government Community Building Partnerships program. 

It is run by volunteers from The Habitat Network.

Community Food Garden

Get involved in growing produce and sharing the harvest. Drop in to plant, weed and do general maintenance anytime you like.

The Habitat Nursery

Provide habitat and food for small birds and other local fauna by planting native plants around your home. Purchase native plants at wholesale prices at the Habitat Nursery. 


Bring your fruit and vegie scraps, tea bags and coffee grounds (no meat, dairy or processed foods) to put in the compost bins and worm farms. The compost will be used to fertilise the community garden.

Available on Wednesday and Saturday 10.00am - 4.00pm.
