We have a community garden, largely managed by the gardeners themselves. 

Some of the plots are there for communal use. Local schools and other organisations make use of them, the rest are allocated to individuals who wish to tend their own plot. 

Throughout the year the garden hosts community events and education activities in conjunction with like-minded organisations such as Melbourne Inner Northwest Transition Initiative (MINTI) and My Smart Garden
