You are warmly invited to PARK FOR A DAY on Sunday 28th of September 10am-4pm at the Edward & Dodds Street Carpark in Brunswick.
This pop up park is part of a longer term campaign to have some of this unused carpark converted to a green space for everyone.
We want the local community to come along to Park for a Day and show support for this idea and share your ideas about what a park here could look like.... The question for you food gardening fans is....Would it include edibles? Come along and have your say!
Please help make a park by 'likeing' us on facebook and sharing this link to invite your friends and neighbors https://www.facebook.com/pitchinforapark
Some background to the event:
Friends of Edward Street is a local brunswick group commited to greening their local neighbourhood with food plants and habitat and bringing the community together in the process.
The group formed 3 years ago when some members got talking about converting some of a unused car park on the street to a permanent park.
They decided that by forming a local friends group to become stewards of the Edward st naturestrip outstands they could demonstrate how commited they were to creating and helping to maintain a new park.
Since then we have been busy maintaining and creating gardens along the street with the help of Moreland City Council seeding grant and helping to maintain the communities for nature habitat corridor that also runs along the street. Perhaps our most loved achievement along the street is the installation of a childrens garden- frequented and cared for by local children.
