The Veggie Spot – Lygon Street Community Garden


This garden is effectively membership based, but membership is free.

To discuss any aspect of the community garden, contact Morgan Koegel (3000acres) by phone (0402 496217) or by email. Or look at their Facebook page or the 3000 acres website.

At 119A Lygon Street, Brunswick East.

This garden is open for everyone to gather, learn and grow. It has six communal plots, fifteen allotment plots (currently all assigned) and two local restaurants growing food for their kitchens. Communal plots are open for everyone to plant and harvest from. To receive the lockbox code to come and go from the garden as you please, attend an induction at the garden (10am-1pm on the fourth Saturday of every month).

The space and garden beds were donated by Milieu, the beds were installed by The Little Veggie Patch Co, and the garden is run by 3000acres.

There are two worm farms accepting scraps and they often host free workshops on topics such as urban beekeeping, mushroom growing and preparing your garden for Spring.

There are regular working bees on the fourth Saturday of every month, 10am-1pm.
