Willing and able? Help raise our greenhouse: Sunday 15th September

Ever heard of barn raising? Even if you know what I'm referring to, watch the time lapse vid above. It's pretty jaw dropping what this bunch of determined people get done.

Why am I talking about this? Well, we're doing our own mini-barn-raising starting at 9am on Sunday 15th September. Instead of a barn though we'll be raising our (much smaller) greenhouse and working on our propagation area.

We need enough willing hands (not as many as they had obviously!) to get it finished in a day so if you can come and help please RSVP by emailing us at (or just reply if you're reading this on an email). 

I don't think it'll take all day, we'll have some lunch and some laughs and help place one more piece of our garden jigsaw in place.

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
