Garden ideas are blooming

Garden ideas are blooming Image

The Urban Reforestation project continues to gain momentum in Docklands with community and business meetings last month to chart future directions.

Garden founder Emily Ballantyne-Brodie said more than 15 residents had expressed interest in having their own plots.

And at the business workshop on November 18, she urged participants to think outside the box.  “It’s a blank canvas and we want to know what you think,” she said.

One idea gaining popularity is to extend the garden onto moored barges in Victoria Harbour.

Ms Ballantyne-Brodie said this could overcome a shortage of publicly available land in Docklands and also provide an iconic identity for Melbourne.

Urban Reforestation and the Rotary Club of Docklands are currently in discussions about ways they can collaborate to benefit the local community.
