The Compost Gods are smiling on our endeavours for this weekend (plus Sunday session moving to Saturday this week)

Well the stars are clearly aligned for us and the Compost Gods have signalled their approval of our Compost Palace build this Saturday. It turns out this week is International Compost Awareness Week!

Because our crew of highly skilled, volunteer craftspeople will be hard at work down at the garden on Saturday, this week we'll move our Sunday session to Saturday. 

That doesn't mean you can't go on SUnday instead (or as well) but feel free to pop down on Saturdayn if you want some company. Say "hello" and have a cuppa, tend to your plot or do a bit of work on the communal beds. There's plenty that needs doing if you feel the urge.

Hope to 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
