PepperGreen – a community park for horticulture, environmental education and heritage awareness.
The majority of the current PepperGreen Farm site was originally a Chinese market garden until the 1950’s, then in later years a plant nursery. The recent discovery of a Chinese brick making kiln dating from 1859, has helped to retain the rich Chinese heritage of the site.
Now a community park for horticulture, environmental education and heritage awareness – operated by Access Contractors to deliver various employment initiatives.
