In partnership with Box Forest College, Moreland City Council and the Glenroy Taskforce a community garden is being developed at the Box Forest College site in Glenroy (Glenroy Rd). This garden will be a space for Glenroy residents of all ages to share skills and life experience. The aim is to attract people from all walks of life to come together to create a stronger, more supportive community while also promoting free access to healthy food and sustainable gardening practices.
The garden will have a number of garden beds growing fruit, herbs and vegetables. There won’t be any individual allotments. All garden beds will be communal, meaning that everyone can tend to the garden and harvest the produce.
There will be space for picnics and sitting back and enjoying the surrounds. School and community groups can use the garden for teaching students and members about plants, healthy eating and gardening. We hope to run workshops to teach local residents about growing their own fruits and vegetables at home.
This garden will be open to everyone in the community to come to socialise, learn, share skills, tend the garden and harvest FREE food!
