New Northcote Library Food Garden

24 June, 2011 at 10:03 am Leave a comment

You may have noticed that Northcote Library has become a demolition site of late, as it prepares to be unveiled as Darebin’s newest community garden.

Local community members, council and supporters have been meeting to fine tune the garden’s design and now members are investigating indigenous edible foods, fruit tree varieties and traditional fruit and veg. It is likely that the garden will showcase a food forest, kitchen garden and possibly a sensory garden experience for children (or the young at heart!)
Do you have any seedlings, plants or seeds  to donate for the garden’s first planting? Or can you suggest a name for the garden?
If you would like to donate some plants, please email with your intentions and a member of the Food Garden will get back to you soon.
The garden is likely to begin planting in early July, with the official opening set for the16th July. You can view progress on the Northcote Library Blog (

Located at 32-38 Separation Street, Northcote VIC 3070
