Sunday 25th August Garden & Gather: planting trees and more!

Our next working bee, we call it our Garden & Gather is coming up Sunday 25th from 11am-3pm.

These are the days where we get together and get BIG STUFF done and take big steps towards our goal of building our garden. We'll need plenty of hands to help so please come along.

Our plans for the day include:

  • getting stuck into planting around the fence-line, mainly trees (for more about this go here)
  • completing prep for our propagation area and greenhouse ready to build in a few weeks (for more about this, go here).
  • trying to tee up another compost workshop

A few other things are happening too.

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
