Our garden featured in Guardian article

March 6, 2014


The Guardian has done an article on community gardening in Melbourne and our garden is one of the five that are featured.

The article certainly shows the incredible diversity among community gardens and their importance in an urban context.

A windy but enjoyable 2013 Open Day

January 7, 2014

2013 Open Day - Front

Open Day on Sunday October 20th 2013 turned out to be rather a battle against the strong wind, but all members present really enjoyed the afternoon, seeing the garden looking so productive and lush and so spick and span, and showing it off to the visitors, who included Federal and State politicians.
The stalls all had a great variety of beautiful items for sale. The fresh veg and flowers from the garden are always in demand and sell very quickly, and the home made produce, very professional looking, delicious sweet and savoury preserves, cakes, biscuits etc, also disappeared, along with the vegetable seedlings, herbs and other plants. Of course, the bbq is popular and the home made lemonade was a winner on such a hot, drying day.
