Calling out for plants for Sunday!

Hi everyone,

Sunday is shaping up to be "mega" if I might borrow an expression I've heard some of the young folk using.

Although we already have some plants for planting in the Food Forest, we're calling out to you in case we can rustle up some donations from you lovely people.

Here's what we're after:
  • Mint - plants/divisions with roots 
  • Peppermint - plants/divisions with roots 
  • Apple Mint - plants/divisions with roots 
  • Lemon Balm - plants/divisions with roots 
  • Oregano - plants/divisions with roots 
  • Jerusalem Artichokes - tubers 
  • Nasturtium - seeds 
  • Parsley - seeds 
  • Calendula/English Marigold - seeds 
  • Borage - seeds 
If you have other plants (with roots ready to plant) that you would like to donate, feel free to bring them with you but don't be offended if we don't use them and you can take them home (or pass them on to others on the day). Alternatively, email grow.eat.moreland@gmail.com with what they are and we'll let you know whether to bring them or not.

See you 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
