Event Description

A great opportunity to see how different community gardens can be. On public to private land, communal and individual gardening. Old and new. 
 
Moreland in Melbourne’s north has a strong food growing heritage and a community that’s increasingly interested in growing food together. To celebrate and showcase our heritage and future we’ll tour six quite different community gardens and show a variety of approaches to growing food in the community. We’re lucky enough to have 2 gardens that haven’t been on a tour before (CERES and Saxon St). 
 
At each stop on the tour we’ll hear about the garden setup, people and story then have a wander around and a chance to ask questions. Come along for the whole tour or join us when you can.
 
Note: the Location and Map info shows where we will start.
Transport is not provided although people with cars can usually carry a few.
We have had cyclists on the tour before too, they take it as a personal challenge!
 
This tour we’ll be going to:
  • Mulberry Garden, Glenroy
  • West Brunswick Community Garden and Food Forest
  • Saxon St Community Garden, Brunswick
  • Luscombe St Community Garden, Brunswick
  • CERES Community Garden, East Brunswick
  • Merri Corner Community Garden, East Brunswick
