How does your garden grow?

30 Apr 2019

How does your garden grow? Image

By Greg Wise

We now have 85 registered volunteers who regularly donate their time to work in the Docklands Community Garden.

Every Docklands resident is welcome to become a volunteer in the garden. Volunteering in the garden is a great way to do something useful for your community and to meet people and make new friends.

We completely replanted the garden with its autumn/winter crop on April 20. The 30 or so volunteers who attended this event had a great time preparing the beds and planting the new vegetables, herbs and flowers and enjoyed a barbecue lunch.

We are grateful to Woolworths at Victoria Harbour which generously donated the food and drinks for this event.

Woolworths has agreed to help the garden in this way when we hold future events which gives a clear indication of their commitment to local community activities.

We have been able to significantly improve the quality of soil in the garden following a sponsorship programme offered to us by Cheryl Andrews, the MD of local business Melbourne Facilities Management.

Another local business, Lifestyle Working, continues to support the garden and we are very grateful for its regular, generous contributions.

As the garden grows and matures it continues to become more self- sufficient in terms of the basic requirements of successful gardens, we now have three worm farms and three compost making facilities on site and will hopefully soon have two professionally-managed bee hives close by.

Anyone who would like to join the gardens volunteer group can do so by emailing Greg at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
