Recently a landscape architecture firm did some research on our Docklands Garden Project in Melbourne. We thought you would be interested to have a read about what they had to say! The article is by Jen Lynch a landscape architecture student at the University of Virginia. The research was undertaken as part of a research project on pop-ups by Taylor Cullity Lethlean, a landscape architecture firm.
Urban Reforestation has moved the docklands community garden to the harbour side end of Merchant St. Here are some photos of the working bee that took place recently. The garden desperately needs compost and mulch, so we are calling for any donations of organic matter (veggie scraps) for compost we will be holding another working bee soon to give the garden some love!
Thank you to all of those people who attended the beautiful Raw Food Feast on Saturday night. The food and people who came were so lovely! A special thank you to the volunteers! It would not have been possible without you. Thank you Aleksey for his special contributions to get the event off the ground.
A new Community Garden in the Victoria Harbour precinct adjacent to Victoria Green is proposed. The following short survey has been compiled to assist with the design of the garden to best meet the needs of the Docklands community. The intention of the garden is to provide an additional green space in the area with an edible landscape that can be used for a variety of gardening, convivial, creative and sustainable education activities, and simply to relax in and enjoy.
The Garden in the Docklands is being moved to a 'transitional site' at the end of Merchant Street. Please be advised in the next couple of weeks the garden is going to be in a 'moving state'! Please be patient until the garden is back together again within two weeks.
We have great news to announce, we are in the process of developing a new permanent site in collaboration with Vic Urban, City of Melbourne and Lend Lease. This is going to take place in the next 8 months. You are welcome to add your feedback and get involved in the garden.
