Community Markets – community markets are held throughout the year. This is a great way to recycle, reuse, regift and reconnect as a community. Stall holder enquiries are welcome.

The VRI Learning Garden is currently only accessed by appointment during the winter months. Come Spring it should be a hive of activity again. Why not volunteer and enjoy getting back to Nature and meeting some new friends. Perhaps you have some skills you would like to share, run a workshop or a course. The garden is all about community connection, growing your own and sustainability.
