I went a visiting a few local community gardens this week around Melbourne’s Northern suburbs. Our place is a studio with a gorgeous balcony where I intend to grow a few edible plants. However, I came across an advert for local community garden and thought it a wonderful idea to also have a garden plot.
It was a beautiful adventure. Yet sadly found a couple of them had waiting lists. I was told one of them could possibly be a year. But also wonderful news to see growing food is.. growing. Ha!
A few photos of the local community gardens in Melbourne’s North East. Quite beautiful spaces for communing, gathering and collaboration. A hum of New Earth??

A newly built garden next to a primary school. It’s highlight? A sand pit for the little ones.
Good News for New Earth.
