About Us

Panania Free Rangers is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2016 by Jacquie Dredge with the purpose to ‘outgrow the status quo’ in an inclusive and sustainable way to unite people by growing food to be shared. At its core, Panania Free Rangers is a small, local team with a focus on therapeutic horticulture and using gardening as a way to build community as well as increase the number of edible gardens in the Georges River region. Panania Free Rangers consult with schools to provide with them the gardening experience that will best suit their students. Kids love getting their hands dirty and by guiding their interests, they learn the importance of growing their own food and maintaining the school garden. The edible gardens implemented into schools aims to encourage mindfulness in a garden setting, show kindness by growing and sharing food and also creates opportunities for students to be involved in community development (such as the East Hills Harvest Festival).

Volunteer

Gardening with Gran

We are currently seeking volunteers with our ‘Gardening with Gran’ project which is an innovative, social and therapeutic gardening program. Volunteers will visit elderly gardeners in their homes and assist them with basic gardening tasks. We will facilitate opportunities for participating in a TAFE qualification in horticulture.

Seeding and Feeding

‘Seeding and Feeding’ is a free activity every second Tuesday of the school term, where volunteers come together for a cuppa at Revesby United Church and produce seedlings for our schools. The program is innovative, friendly and therapeutic and an inclusive program for all.

These programs are supported by Canterbury Bankstown Council.
