In appreciation of our volunteers - that's you!

Hi everyone, hope your Spring is going well.

A quick note to let you know that a little while back we applied for a grant from the Federal Government Community Investment program (set up to support and encourage volunteers). Last week we found out that we were successful and have been offered just under $2000!

These funds will cover the cost of some bits and pieces that should make life a little more comfortable for us all as well as some practical stuff:
  • some gardening tools/equipment, 
  • some outdoor furniture,
  • a decent first aid kit, 
  • a whiteboard, 
  • a backpack sprayer to sprayt the fruit trees, 
  • an urn.
Nice eh? 

Anyway, hope to see you in a few weeks on the 25th November at our first big working bee in the community garden.

We're working together for a vibrant, sustainable network of community gardening locations in Moreland.

Our a 100% volunteer-based non-profit community group currently manages two community gardens in West Brunswick and Pentridge a food forest (also in West Brunswick).

Stop and think for 1 minute and you'll come up with at least one good reason for having community gardens all over the place. In case you don't have a minute or need some help, here are our top five!
  1. To bring people together.
  2. To hold on to Moreland's character and gardening knowledge.
  3. To provide somewhere where people can do some physical activity, relax and enjoy themselves
  4. To encourage sustainable gardening
  5. To make it easy for people to get hold of healthy locally grown food
