Blooming garden

2019 11 Buninyong Community GardenFrom the 2019 December Buninyong News

The Buninyong Community Garden is now in full bloom and is jam packed with the season’s crops. Lettuce, broad beans, peas, radish and plenty of herbs to add extra flavour, are being picked.

Tomatoes, carrots, other root vegetables, zucchini, sweet corn and other leafy greens are ‘in’. There is an abundance of bee-attracting flowers including poppies, borage and sweet peas, which make the garden look particularly colourful.


The yoghurt pots that can be seen there have been found to be an ideal way to protect seedlings from frost and snails, and will be removed as the plants mature. The garden is organic and avoids using poisons.

Residents are invited to call by and talk to the keen gardeners there about obtaining a plot or food-growing in general.

The Community Garden is at Royal Park, corner Warrenheip and Hedrick Streets. Gardeners are there on most Wednesday mornings from 9:30am. To enquire about the garden phone Liz on 0419 589 433.
