Garden & Gather Event - Sunday 28th October 11am – 3pm (West Brunswick)


Garden & Gather is a monthly public event that takes place on the 4th Sunday of every month at the West Brunswick Community Garden and Food Forest in Dunstan Reserve, West Brunswick. Everyone is welcome to go along!

This month’s event will focus on the food forest and will include:

  • Planting, mulching, weeding and tidying up
  • A chat about some of the plants in the Food Forest
  • Training of vines and tightening pergola wires
  • Tasty, refreshing afternoon tea and great conversation
  • A food swap where you can exchange any surplus home grown food you might have

Make new friends and get a few tips about gardening and growing food. If the last few sessions are anything to go by, everyone will get lots done and leave feeling tired and satisfied and knowing more of their neighbours.

Past events have seen lots of pruning, planting, weeding and mulching as work has got underway on rejuvenating the Dunstan Reserve Food Forest (a public urban orchard of mature fruit, nut and olive trees) as part of a project funded by City of Moreland Council. In coming months, the focus of activity will extend to rebuilding the adjacent community garden.

Sound appealing? Get involved, go along!
