Merristem Community Nursery - Winter Fruit Trees sale/exchange day 17th July

Merristem is a community greenhouse project run by volunteers in Melbourne's inner northern suburb. It is a propagation project growing useful and productive trees and plants for urban melbourne, making available many rare and locally unknown varieties.

We have been propagating some amazing and hard to find fruit trees this year, great for edible plant nerds, stoic defenders of genetic diversity, and anyone around Melbourne who wants to eat some really tasty fruit! Growing out these trees also means you can contribute cuttings later on - so over time they can become more widely available in our region. We have a sale/exchange day coming up SOON!!

Where: Merristem - 38 Harrison st Brunswick.
When : 2-4pm Sunday, 17th July

For more information or to get involved on the project go to our website
