Help us get West Brunswick a new shed!

After nearly 30 years of extraordinary service, the shed and verandah at West Brunswick Community Garden are now overdue for replacement and we need your help to raise around $3,000 to cover the balance of the cost.

Your donation will help support the work of the garden volunteers who propagate, plant, tend and harvest the fresh organic produce at the Garden and manage the compost hub which enables the local community to keep their green waste out of landfill.

We are aiming to raise the funds by the end of March, so we can get the new shed and verandah in place before winter.

How you can help

You can deposit your donation into our account (this would be our preference):
  • Account Name: Moreland Community Garden Inc.
  • BSB: 633000
  • Account Number: 143603140
  • Reference: Shed Fund
Alternatively, you can donate at one of our organised events at West Brunswick Community Garden to a member of our organising committee. (Not sure who we are? There's a poster on the shed with our names and pics.)

Of course, you are most welcome to donate more but if all of our West Brunswick members donated just $10 each we’d raise $800 and be well on the way to our target.

You can also help us achieve our goal by sharing this email with friends and colleagues who may be interested. We'll be posting on our Facebook page soon so look out for that and share with enthusiasm!

If you behind this we can smash it and set our garden up with a shed for the decades ahead.

See our website for more information about our amazing garden or email us.

What's on this month (West Brunswick)

Here are the times in the coming month when you're likely to bump into other gardeners down at the garden and garden organisers will be there to help show your around and answer questions:

Sun 2nd Dec 10am - 12noon Seed Savers and Propagation
Sun 9th Dec 10am - 1pm Communal Gardening**
Sat 15th Dec 10am - 1pm Food Forest Working Bee
Sun 23th Dec 11am - 3pm Garden n Gather**

Every Friday there's a casual meet up from from 10am**

  • Members can obviously visit the garden when they want to including any of these sessions
  • If you're interested just come along
  • Friday meetups attract a regular crowd and are a good opportunity to garden in company and learn a few things
  • Sessions marked with ** will have someone who can provide advice and direction on what's to be done in communal growing spaces
  • Members who have not yet visited should come down on one of these days to meet the garden (and a few gardeners) and get shown around
  • If there's a time you're available to spend time at the garden and you want company, let us know and we'll add it to the list
