No Work, Just Fun: West Brunswick Community Garden celebrates 3 years with a community dance Sat 15th August

West Brunswick Community Garden is celebrating three successful years with a mid-winter community dance and fundraiser.

We have a very special celebration coming up and you, your friends and family (and anyone else really) are all invited to help make it an event to remember for years to come!

When: 7.30pm on Saturday 15th August

Where: Our Lady Help of Christians Church Hall, 49 Nicholson Street, East Brunswick.

Cost: The entrance charge is $25, concession $15, children $10, families $50.
Food/Drink: BYO soft drinks or alcohol. Finger food, tea and tasty Wild Timor Coffee provided. 

Profits go to our garden. This will be a key fundraising event for us this year so please get behind it, share it around, get a bunch of people together and come along.

BookingYou can book here now!

We'll be getting together for a community dance where we'll be treated to amazing music from Klezmeritis and Bohemian Nights performing a mix of Gypsy, Klezmer, European, jazz and Middle Eastern music. Led by Ernie Gruner on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, they also feature Phil Carroll on accordion, ney and vocals, Ron Hansen on double bass and experienced dance-caller Audrey Fine, who will teach everyone the dance steps (no previous experience needed!). There will be line dances, square dances, circle dances and more.

While they're playing, we'll be dancing, eating, sipping, talking all things gardening and generally having a great time. 

Save the date, invite your friends, have a bit of fun and support your garden!

There will be no weeding or compost turning at this event.

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
