The upcoming Compostravaganza - 10th May

We are celebrating the International Compost Awareness Week this year with a mini Compostravaganza. Some wonderful people from VEG will be holding a compost workshop at the community garden on Saturday May 10th, and we hope to have the new compost portico complete by then as well as some new signage. 

The compost hub welcomes contributions from all the local community, particularly those with no outdoor space for their own composting system. The Compostravaganza will introduce more of our community to composting, and encourage them to take part.

We looking for volunteers to help with the event, to:
  • Design a flyer about the event 
  • Letterbox the flyer to the local community 
  • Help out on the day, with things such as guiding new folk, giving out information and cups of tea 
  • Construct the portico on a day in April (to be announced) 
  • Something else you’d like to suggest 
If you’d like to get involved with the Compostravaganza, please contact the compost crew by email at: wbcompostteam [at] (replacing the [at] with @).

We look forward to hearing from you.

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
