April Garden & Gather This Sunday

Woah! Where did April go? This Sunday (28th April) from 11am-3pm is our next Garden & Gather, your chance to catch up with each other and lend a hand around the garden to move us closer to finishing the build.

Have you seen our garden recently??? It's looking fantastic! We've got so much done since we started with our Big Dig last November: paths laid, communal beds established, raised beds built and filled, power hooked up not to mention food grown, harvested and eaten. We've come a long way and still have plenty to do but we're getting closer.

This month some of us will revisit our food forest (that's the bit outside the garden with all the fruit trees in it) to give it a tidy and prep for a big session in June (more on this soon). Lots of other stuff will be going on in the garden too.

  • We'd love it if you can be there by 11am so we can explain what's happening for the day (once!). 
  • Lunch is at 1pm - bring something shareable to drink and eat.
  • We'll have a swap table set up so if you have any fruit, veg, seeds etc to swap bring them along too.
  • Oh and remember your gloves and a hat.

What a beautiful time of year for being in the garden. See you down there on Sunday!

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
