Calling Communal Crew and Food foresters (and anyone else really)! Sunday 8th Action!

Hi there,
If you're not coming to the Permablitz picnic on Saturday 14th from 12pm or to the Garden & Gather on Sunday 22nd from 9am-1pm  (let's face it, the shops will be packed and the garden will be lovely!), this Sunday 8th we have a few things happening and we'd love to see you down at the garden.

We'll be getting underway at 9am with tea, coffee and maybe a biscuit or a slice of cake. We have three main things on the go:

  • Communal Crew working bee - all you communal gardeners, come along and lend a hand, meet your fellow crew members
  • Food Forest working bee - all those of you who've said you were keen to help look after the Food a Forest, let's see you!
  • The kids from the child care centre next door to our garden will be coming with their parents to plant their stepping stones in the paths
By the way, our friends next door at the Moreland Child Care Centre won the Environmental Education in Early Childhood award which the stepping stones were a part of! How fantastic is that?!?!?

Bring an edible treat, a hat, gloves and sturdy shoes.

See you down there!

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
