At the front of the Hurstbridge Community Hub, Graysharps Road, Hurstbridge.
This initiative is one of a number of related food-related initiatives at the site (others include a food is free table, a twice monthly food swap and a seed library).
The garden includes numerous wicking beds, a compost station with three large bins, a small perennial food garden, a sensory garden and a picnic/eating area. It is managed according to permaculture principles.
The garden is under the care of group of volunteers whose aim is to provide an inclusive space for locals to connect and learn through topics of food growing, community resilience, and sustainability. The produce from the beds is free for everyone to harvest, promoting the concepts of a sharing economy, and the use of communal land for the production of fresh, local food.
A range of free/low-cost workshops and events are held regularly and advertised through the Edible Hub Facebook page.
Volunteers generally meet on the fourth Thursday of the month at 9.30am to plan or carry out work in the garden. Anyone is welcome to attend and no ongoing commitment to the garden is required.
Food swaps are held at the garden on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month from 10-11am.
Following your Facebook post regarding compost contributions, Hurstbridge Preschool would gladly help out and we would be interested in obtaining a bucket to fill with collections.
Please email us with bucket collection details,
