Community garden update

08 May 2014

The Docklands Community Garden pavilion is now open to the public and is hoped to become a site for community activities.

Construction on the pavilion began in October last year and garden volunteer Greg Wise said the City of Melbourne officially signed off on the structure in late March.

The garden volunteers aim to use the pavilion to activate the garden through seminars, art shows and music performances.

“The pavilion is unique in the fact it was built from reclaimed material from other developments in Docklands,” Mr Wise said.

In less fortunate news, the garden was targeted by vandalism last month, according to Mr Wise and fellow volunteer Chris Koehn. Vandals caused damage to garden beds and tagged parts of the garden with graffiti.

“The City of Melbourne has been notified and they have said they will increase security patrols to ‘nip it in the bud’,” Mr Wise said.

The garden held its winter planting day on May 4, aiming to encourage people to get involved with the garden.

New volunteers are always welcome and anyone interested in finding out more is encouraged to contact Greg Wise on 0408 818 980 or Chris Koehn on 0402 108 105.

The garden committee is also seeking donations of gardening tools. If you have any tools to donate contact Mr Wise or Ms Koehn on the numbers above.

For locals interested in gardening, the Friends of Moonee Ponds Creek are also holding a community planting day just outside of Docklands on May 31 from 10am until midday.

The planting day is being sponsored by the Regional Rail Link – city to Maribyrnong River and will take place between the Moonee Ponds Creek, the Capital City Trail and the Regional Rail link’s new works.

Plants, equipment and morning tea will be supplied and anyone is welcome to attend.

For more information contact Friends of Moonee Ponds Creek secretary Kaye Oddie on 9329 0635.
