Our garden was built in 2019 by the City of Boroondara for local residents. The garden has 50 individually allocated plots, and features a communal food forest which provides opportunities for harvest sharing, raised plots that are wheelchair accessible, shared wicking beds and a children's area with raised circular garden beds.

Whilst we encourage residents to Become a WSCG Member, the whole community is welcome to enter and enjoy viewing the garden. 

However, please do not pick the produce!

The crops have been grown & nurtured by our garden members, & it is heartbreaking for them to lose things they've been tending for months. Quite often we produce too much of one thing or another, so if you see some veggies, herbs or seedlings left on our Abundance Shelf, they have been left to share with the community and you may help yourself to those :)
