In 2018 Green Space Our Place partnered with Friends of Sugarworld Botanic Gardens to form a monthly gardening group.
These unique and beautiful gardens are located within the Sugarworld Parklands, only 20 minutes from the centre of Cairns. The botanic gardens feature acres of ancient trees and a sprawling exotic fruit tree orchard which produces many diverse and interesting fruits such as the Jaboticaba, the Miracle Fruit (which turns sour into sweet), Garcinia (Mangosteen), Artocarpus (Breadfruit types) and Canistel, to name a few.
Friends members and volunteers are involved with a variety of gardening activities such as general garden detailing, pruning the orchard, weeding and mulching.
Come along and take part in a variety of gardening activities while learning about tropical fruit plants.
