West Brunswick Community Garden and Food Forest has some old roots in Dunstan Reserve dating back to the early 1990s. The spaces were re-developed in 2011 and is now focussed on sustainable gardening, sharing, learning and growing together. The community garden space hosts a local community compost hub, 30 individual plots, a greenhouse, a meeting & shaded seating space, and a large communal gardening area.

There are 125 different trees and plants in a permaculture system. It is an educational space incorporating bushfood planting, semi-tropical planting, orchard space and a variety of other zones. It is always growing.

The garden is part of Moreland Community Gardening. Please join the group to be part of a vibrant community and to have fun.
