Who we are

Rushall Garden is part of  the North Fitzroy Community Gardens Group (NFCGG), a non-profit organisation that formed in 1997, with the aim of establishing a community garden in North Fitzroy. The NFCGG proposed a garden with both individual allotments and space for communal gardening projects.

Rushall Garden is located in the Thomas Kidney Reserve on Rushall Crescent (behind the grassy knoll opposite the end of Kneen St.) in North Fitzroy. You can read about local identity Thomas Kidney here.

The NFCGG aims to enhance the sustainability of the North Fitzroy community by:

  • respecting prior ownership of the land by Indigenous Australians;
  • maintaining an attractive urban space where people can grow plants predominantly for food and which is accessible to the local community to enjoy;
  • promoting sustainable organic gardening techniques;
  • fostering the sharing and development of a diversity of gardening skills;
  • managing the garden by consensus in an open, participatory and non-discriminatory manner.
