Secret Garden Nursery

The Secret Garden & Nursery is a not-for-profit community garden and nursery set on five beautiful acres at the University of Western Sydney campus in Richmond, NSW. Members of the community are welcome to use the gardens and enjoy the farmyard animals and purchase plants from the nursery. The Secret Garden also offers training and educational programs for the whole community in horticulture, permaculture, animal husbandry, vegetable and fruit production and specialised engagement and training opportunities for school children and individuals with a disability. The therapy garden offers a safe, supportive and educational environment where people with mental illness and other disabilities can learn horticultural skills through the "Food for Thought" program. The sale of plants grown in the nursery help finance this successful project. Come along and enjoy the rambling gardens, take your pick of our huge selection of plants, commune with the ducks, chickens, sheep, horse, goats, pigs & rabbits or just enjoy the environment and have a picnic.
