The Turramurra Lookout Community Garden (TLC Garden) is located right on the Pacific Highway and is an inclusive space where locals can drop by to have a look, help weed or even grow your own vegies. Every Saturday there is a working bee from 9am - 12pm, where you can meet and help the other volunteers who run the garden and maybe even take a few vegies or herbs home for dinner.
