May's Garden & Gather - This Sunday!

Our monthly Garden & Gather - your opportunity to meet your fellow gardeners, get a tour and learn how the garden works, sort out your membership and help us make our garden better - is on again this Sunday from 11am - 3pm.

  • Making a change to the area outside the shed
  • Mulch inside our perimeter fence with straw
  • Potting up the unhappy ruby grapefruit
  • Making up some plot holder signs
  • Hopefully start work on our new garden sign
  • Cut up some more reo mesh
  • Remove some sand from the sandpit

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.

Share your thoughts and vote for our garden's name

Got 5 minutes to share your thoughts on the garden?

A while back we asked you to contribute your ideas about what we could do with our garden in the year ahead. Our garden organising committee pulled those ideas together, reviewed them, distilled them into some key areas which we'll all be working on.

We've put together a simple online questionnaire to get your thoughts on a few things:

  • Vote for your favourite name for our garden
  • Which areas of the garden you are involved with
  • If you would like to be more active at the garden
  • How we can help you become more active with the garden
  • If our plans are in line with how you would like to see the garden grow
  • If you would be particularly interested in assisting the organising committee with any of the goals we've identified

It's easy, just click this link and away you go!

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
