This Sunday's Garden & Gather

Autumn sunshine making everything look lush
Our next Garden & Gather is coming up this Sunday between 11am and 3pm.

As well as running an introduction for new gardeners, we'll be accepting membership and communal crew contributions if you haven't got around to paying yet.

We have plenty of stuff to do including:
  • Finishing off some of the mulching left from last weekend
  • Mounting the mural that was painted for us
  • Making personal plot name signs and taking plot holder photos
  • Building a structure for our new compost signs
  • Lifting the unhappy ruby grapefruit and give it a temporary home over winter
  • Removing the pesky passionfruit by the shed
  • Edging the remaining personal plots
  • Mulching inside the perimeter fence with straw
What to bring: gloves, sturdy shoes, something edible to share for lunch, a coat in case it rains

Remember, if you can’t make it this time, mark the 4th Sunday of each month on your calendar and plan to make it to 2 or 3 working bees each year.

See you 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
