Robinson Reserve, next to Reynard Street Neighbourhood House, 104B Reynard Street, Coburg, 3058.
The garden was created in 2018 to increase access to to fresh nutritious foods and to provide an opportunity to educate children and adults about growing food. All beds and areas are open to the community to harvest at any time. It is a fun, interactive space where you can get your hands dirty learning horticulture skills or feel free to pick some herbs on your way home for dinner tonight!
The garden’s management is overseen by the next door Reynard Street Neighbourhood House. It has been designed to be as accessible as possible with staff members from the house trained in disability access and inclusion.
There are three small compost bins for community members to drop off green waste. They also recycle waste from the Neighbourhood House’s community lunches to create compost and feed our worm farms, which in turn fertilise the vegetable beds.
They welcome donations of plants and items but email them first.
There are working bees on the 2nd Saturday of each month, 9am-midday, with all new visitors and volunteers more than welcome. A food swap is held on the same day, 10.30am-12.30pm.
