If you are interested in establishing a backyard food forest or even thinking of setting up a community garden then getting involved with the Leichardt Community Garden is a great place to start. This awesome group of enthusiastic locals and gardening gurus are transforming a mostly bare block into a vibrant food forest for the local community to enjoy.
The Leichhardt Community Garden broke soil only 2 months ago by planting almost 100 fruit trees. This is an excellent opportunity to get your hands dirty and see how to implement an edible garden from scratch. You will learn about everything from plant selection and soils to companion planting and maintenance. Plus you will get to hang out with a lovely group of people led by the very inspiring Cameron Lund.
