Organic Compost. Horticultural Therapy.


Hobo Gro is an urban collective formed from a TAFE NSW Outreach project based on ecologically sustainable practise.

Participants are trained adult educators with broad experience in environmental sustainability
– developing compost systems, liquid fertilizer, vertical gardens and horticultural therapy.

Hobo Gro has grown proudly by saving produce from landfill using recycled materials to build structures and, as far as possible, use recycled materials to contain and promote our premium product.

Hobo Gro operates in partnership with the Addison Road Community Centre management and is supported by TAFE Sydney institute, EPA (Environmental Protection Authority), Marrickville Council and the local community.

All products are produced on site using very local waste resources.

Horticultural therapy has become another branch of Hobo Gro with our certified and trained participants facilitating worm farm and composting workshops with future workshops planned for the Love Food Hate Waste program.



Our ethos is to: Help Others Build Opportunity
