3000 Acres have set up a communal veggie garden on the vacant block opposite Woolworths Supermarket. The community is invited to take part in growing their own produce in a plot and are invited to information and demonstrations onsite.
3000 Acres aim is to connect people to land, resources and each other so that more people can grow more food in more places.
In their own words…
“Sometimes, when people want to start to grow food, it can be hard to find a site or know who to talk to for access or planning approval. We have noticed a lot of empty and underutilised land across Melbourne and beyond. We are helping to connect people who want to grow food, with land, with other people, and also with the right people in local government, to make sure everyone can work together.”
