The Hub Plot and The Hub Foundation

The Hub Plot (at the rear of the building)

The Hub Plot is a demonstration garden at the rear of The Hub building. Once used as a garden space for the kitchen of the former pub for around 100 years, it is now used to show various types of garden watering systems, fruit and vege growing, worm farming and composting. Regular working bees are held every Monday morning from 9am and workshops and field trips are conducted regularly. Most recently wicking bed boxes have been established by the Hub Foundation outside on the footpath. These boxes are maintained by the Hub Plot volunteers.

This foundation was established early in 2014 with the aim of helping to tackle climate change locally.
