Pledge your support for community garden

Docklands Community Garden has launched a crowd-funding campaign in hope of raising enough money to replace the soil in the garden beds.

According to volunteer gardener Greg Wise, the soil hasn’t been replaced since the garden opened seven years ago.

“That soil is now depleted of all of the organic matter and minerals that are needed to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers,” Mr Wise said.

“As a result we have to spend a lot of money every time we replant the garden on fertiliser, mulch and other organic ingredients we dig into the garden.”

“In addition we have to find the money for this, which is generally out of the volunteers’ pockets,” Mr Wise said.

Replacement of the soil will cost around $3000, including the soil itself, transport and Bobcat use.

The Docklands Community Garden is offering a number of rewards for those who donate to the cause including tours of the garden, produce packs and public acknowledgement on the garden notice board and community garden website.
