Address: Thomas Kidney Reserve, Rushall Crescent, Fitzroy North, 3068 (behind the grassy knoll opposite the end of Kneen Street).
Notes (in their own words):

This garden is allotment-based, with some communal areas.

The garden comprises around 50 allotments plus some communal areas and composting facilities. You can become a member for an annual fee of $10, which then entitles you to participate in their regular working bees, work in the communal areas and share produce, as well as to join the waiting list for a plot. Note, however, that there is currently a long waiting list for plots (around 6 years).

The garden was established around 2004. It is part of the North Fitzroy Community Gardens Group (NFCGG) who aim to enhance the sustainability of the Fitzroy North community by:

  • Respecting prior ownership of the land by Indigenous Australians.
  • Maintaining an attractive urban space where people can grow plants predominantly for food and which is accessible to the local community to enjoy.
  • Promoting sustainable organic gardening techniques.
  • Fostering the sharing and development of a diversity of gardening skills.
  • Managing the garden by consensus in an open, participatory and non-discriminatory manner.
