Flemington Community Garden’s new lease of life

flem-com-gard

Flemington Community Garden, one of the many inner city community gardens providing garden plots near high rise public housing,  was relocated due to a new freeway extension. It is now growing on in its new space, with the help of Cultivating Community and Garden of Eden project workers. Art work by gardeners is also a strong feature of the new gardens.

more @ Australian City Farms and Community Gardens Network:

“A new community garden in Flemington, Melbourne, features around 130 allotments, a chook shed designed in an organic architectual style, a rustic shelter, raised garden beds for less-mobile gardeners and hand-finished seats and tables.”
