We are super excited to say the Saxon st Garden has now been built, and all community members are invited to the launch and planting party this Thursday from 5:30pm.
This latest garden by 3000acres, in collaboration with the Moreland City Council, is a new shared community hub and food garden at 33 Saxon Street, Brunswick. On the site of a now vacant primary school, 30 wicking beds were constructed last weekend from repurposed industrial plastic containers with the help of over a dozen local volunteers, and are now ready and waiting for planting. We have a good bunch of donated seedlings from some generous local providers, but as we have 30 beds to fill we are still searching for more, so any excess seedlings that community members may have to contribute will be so very appreciated.
The garden will be properly launched this Thursday December 4th from 5:30pm. There will be a BBQ, cider from our friends at Faire Ferments Cider Co-op, and an opportunity for people to get their hands dirty and help plant out the garden beds. All are welcome to come and celebrate this great new edible space in Brunswick.
