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 Fair Food week and our food 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.
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
