Hello, and welcome to the the Clifton Hill Community Garden's blog.
We're a group of enthusiastic food gardeners based in Clifton Hill, Melbourne, Australia. We're constantly looking for new ways to grow food in our suburb, and thought it would be nice to share some of our urban agriculture adventures here.
The group also picks up food scraps from two local cafes, Quince and Squirrel, which we then turn into compost. That aspect of our project was set up under the supportive wing of Cultivating Community. We're always on the lookout for volunteers to get involved and be on the roster for picking up from the cafes - the dream is to continue expanding and include other cafes in the area.
We also have spare plots at the garden, and welcome local folk who crave some dirt to grow vegies in. We're in the City of Yarra, which means we live in a city which currently has an urban agriculture coordinator, Pete Huff, and a great street planter box scheme for growing vegies as well. Look out for some more posts on that in the near future, or check out some of the info on the council's community garden info page.
