The Gardens celebrated 21 years in 2020!

The March St Community Gardens came into existence following Newcastle City Council (NCC) adopting a Community Gardens Program in 1999. In June, 2000, NCC published ‘Community Gardens’, a booklet which was the official guide to the community greening volunteer training program, and it was expected that all community garden groups use it.

At the 2021 AGM the name was changed to March St Allotment Gardens – to reflect the running of the Gardens whereby each allotment is maintained by an individual member who buys their own seed or plant stock and grows produce for their own use.
