About the project

A one-acre organic community garden where local people can grow their own food, attend weekly food growing support sessions, participate in cultural food growing events and grow herbs and vegetables to sell to residents and use in our cafe.

Recognised as an inner-city oasis in the heart of Kings Cross, The Calthorpe Project brings together people of different ages, cultures, and abilities to enjoy open green space and recreational facilities. Situated in an area of deprivation we specialise in supporting vulnerable and excluded people and groups.
