Your garden needs you!

Do we need to appeal to the riot police to help?
Hi, me again. I know it was only a few days ago that I asked for volunteer waterers but I'm back to ask again. It's important.

Imagine standing out in the cooling evening, sprinkling some water on happy plants, sighing and thinking 'This is the life'. That's what it's like. Really.

So far we have 15 lovely people who've put their hand up which is fantastic but we need 15 more.

Don't the plants look happy?
You want our plants to be happy too right?
I can't think of a more elegant, less cliched way to say "many hands make light work". Simply put, if we don't get more of you to help it means more work for the few people who have volunteered.

If you're one of our 70 members who hasn't volunteered we really need you to do an hour of watering every couple of weeks.

If you'd like to help but you're not a member don't let that be a barrier, let's talk!

Please reply to this email (if you're reading this in an email that is) or email us at grow.eat.moreland@gmail.com with your name and days of the week you can water.

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
