Moreland Community Gardens Tour 2013 - all welcome!

Hi everyone,
Last year in August, to give us some ideas for how our garden could look and work, we organised a tour of 5 community gardens for the members of the various gardens. It was lots of fun, a bit exhausting for those on bikes and I certainly made some new friends as a result, I reckon others did too.

We've managed to organise another tour of the same community gardens this year and agreed on Saturday 23rd November as THE DAY.
The inspirational Merri Corner Community Garden

It will be really interesting to see the gardens more than a year since the last tour and also at a different time of year. It'll also be useful to see how the other gardens tackle the challenges we face now which were only theoretical a year ago.

I hope you can come along. Here's the timetable:
  • 11am Luscombe St CG East Brunswick
  • 11.45am Merri Corner CG East Brunswick
  • 12.30pm PepperTree Place Coburg (BYO Lunch)
  • 1.30pm West Brunswick CG
  • 2.15pm Mulberry Garden Glenroy

The big difference this year is that we agreed we will share the tour with a wider audience so we'll be opening the tour up to everyone. 

It'll be a chance for others to come and see what we're all up to at our various gardens in Moreland and find out how to get involved.

Please RSVP by emailing and let us know if you need a lift or you're able to give others a lift.

We'll get in touch with those who RSVP to provide more information closer to the date.

I hope you can make it and start spreading the word! (hmm that sounds strangely familiar…)

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
