Urban gardens are enjoyable places to spend time in nature, and can provide important habitat for local biodiversity. The Adelaide Sustainability Centre and Climate-Proof Food have created an Urban Garden Bingo resource to explore the Common Ground Community Garden based at The Joinery.
This self-guided activity will help you to recognise various weeds, flowers, critters and garden structures typically found in urban gardens. We encourage you to take your time, and enjoy the opportunity to connect to nature in an urban environment.
This activity can be played at The Joinery garden anytime during public open hours, 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, or you can play in your own backyard or local area.
Please note that the garden at The Joinery is the property of hard-working Common Ground volunteers. Please do not pick or eat anything in the garden.
Children must be accompanied by a guardian and be appropriately supervised at all times.
How to play:
Select a feature in one of the bingo squares and locate it in the garden. To complete the activity find 5 squares in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal)!
You might even like to find them all.

We pay respect to Elders past and present, and recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land, which are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today.
