Notes (in their own words):

This garden is open to the public.

This is a communal garden on public housing land associated with the East Preston Community Centre. The garden was established in late 2018 and The East Preston Community Centre, in partnership with DIVRS Urban Food Program, are continuing to develop it. Once fully developed, it will include shared vegetable growing areas, fruit trees, berries, food forest gardens and composting/worm farming facilities.

Local community members are invited to get involved in shaping the garden’s look and feel. This is a space where local residents can connect, share, learn and grow food locally. From planting, weeding and harvesting crops to designing what will be planted in the vacant beds – there’s plenty to do.

A gardening group, led by the DIVRS Urban Food Program, work in the garden on Thursday mornings, 9am-midday, and it is open to the general public throughout the week. Everyone is welcome to attend the Thursday morning sessions. Occasionally, there are bigger working bees.
