Calling all Cooks: the Moreland Community Cookbook Needs You!

Kale, lemon and mint salad - local and seasonal summer produce
Preparing for my favourite summer recipe... find out later this week. 

Up to your ears in summer produce? Don't know what to do with your kale or broad beans? Never fear... the Moreland Community Cookbook project is here.

We are looking to feature your recipes for local and seasonal garden produce on this blog!

We've shared recipes in the past, but we're hoping to make it a regular feature in 2014. If there is enough interest, your favourite dishes and family recipes may even be published in a cookbook at the end of the year.

If you have a seasonal recipe you'd love to share, send it to at and watch this space. If you have photos, go ahead and send them too!

Garden and Gather is an excellent example of how food is at the centre of our social lives and communities: people coming together over homemade dishes and a job well done, even if they've never met each other.

Sharing these recipes is just one more way for us to forge connections with each other and the community around us, so let us know how you're preparing and sharing your summer harvest.

Happy cooking!

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
