OUR GROWING COMMUNITY
OUR GROWING PRODUCE
It started with an idea… “Grow vegetables in a community shared environment”
From humble beginnings, people came together to grow vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers sustainably, free of pesticides and as organic as we can make it. To socialise with other people and to be part of a community…
It grew into a mission… “Feed a growing community”
We have now incorporated and are supported by a growing community of registered members eager to make a difference in Kensington…
Now we have a vision… “To sustainably grow vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers, To increase local biodiversity, To create a vibrant meeting place, To encourage well being, To encourage self sustainability and, of course, To feed our growing community”
But if we are going to achieve our mission, we need to expand, we need to increase our food growing capacity, diversify into other garden areas and bring the community along with us…
But we NEED YOUR HELP TO ACHIEVE THIS...
Feeding a growing community will take time and we can’t do it alone.
We need people just like you, dedicated to making a difference in Kensington, in Melbourne, in Victoria, in Australia, and in the world.
JOIN US TO HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY AND IN THIS WORLD!
