Docklands Garden Brings Life and Soul to the Docks in Melbourne!

Melbourne’s love of bringing life to hidden spaces has sprouted in Docklands with the opening of its Community Garden in Geographe Street Docklands on Sunday 15 July, in a joint initiative from Urban Reforestation, Places Victoria and the City of Melbourne.

NEW GARDEN SITE!

NEW GARDEN SITE!

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!

Win organic fresh food! Docklands Community Garden Survey

Win organic fresh food! Docklands Community Garden Survey

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.
