Mooroolbark Community Garden


This garden is open to the public 24/7.

To discuss any aspect of the community garden, contact Helen Vander-Heyden by phone (0407 405 665) or email. Also, see their Facebook page.

At 11-21 Charles Street (corner Charles and Station Street), Mooroolbark.

The garden is almost an acre in size and includes 12 large raised beds, all of which are communal. The aim is to provide a locally grown, organic, ethical, environmentally friendly, healthy, sustainable and self-funded community food source. Plus it is a place of being and sharing skills, knowledge and ideas for local community members of all ages, genders, ethnicity and abilities.

They have a polytunnel where they grow veggie seedlings for sale and any excess produce is also available for sale.

The garden was opened in 2023 and is on a temporary site pending the Council deciding what to do with the site longer term.

There is a gardening club that meets every Wednesday morning 10am-midday. There is usually also someone there on Thursday mornings, 10am-midday, who you can chat with. For anyone that wants to be involved in the garden, they ask that you become a member in order to facilitate communications. As at 2023, annual membership was $15 ($30 for families and free for concession card holders).
