Has it been a month already? July Garden & Gather this Sunday 11am-3pm - All Welcome!

Just a quick note to remind you all that this Sunday between 11am-3pm is our monthly Garden & Gather down at the West Brunswick Community Garden & Food Forest.

Here's what will be happening:

  • Catching up with each other and what's been happening in and out of the garden
  • General maintenance around the garden
  • Clearing the space between the shed and the compost palace in preparation for building our propagation area (yippee!)
  • Paint our blackboard (weather permitting)!
  • Participate in the amazing compost workshop at 11am!
  • Witness the progress in the north communal bed!
  • Wander the wonderful food forest!

We'll enjoy a nice lunch at 1pm so bring along something yummy to share for lunch

As always bring gloves and sensible shoes.

Sorry it's been a bit quiet recently, lots of planning going on. Over the next couple of weeks, we'll aim to let you know more about what's coming including:

  • our propagation area
  • building the remaining raised "access" beds
  • perimeter planting
  • shade and seating
  • Friends of the Food Forest
  • signage
Thanks to everyone who has paid their membership, personal plot and communal garden contributions. It's not too late, your contributions really do help. If you want to know how to contribute, email us at grow.eat.moreland@gmail.com.

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
