Personal Plots Update

Some of our personal plotters have decided a personal plot is not for them which means we have some new gardeners joining us, so welcome new gardeners!

Currently there is still a plot available. If you have not been contacted for a plot and you are interested please email us at grow.eat.moreland@gmail.com, to make sure you are still on the list.

Remember, to be assigned a plot you must be a member of the garden (pay $10 per year or email/show us your concession card, this needs to be renewed each year). We have a system for assigning plots which takes into account your gardening space at home, how close you live to the garden and your volunteer history with the garden. The best way increase your chance of getting a plot assigned is to come along to Garden n Gathers or to help out in a group at the garden.

If you don't feel you can commit to a plot, not sure if you know enough to garden on your own, like gardening with others or are just dying to get your hands dirty come and join in with the Communal Crew. Regular meetings on the second Sunday of the month and other times coming soon.

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
