Welcome to Sustainable Macleod

Sustainable Macleod is part of the worldwide Transition Movement. Projects by Sustainable Macleod include the Macleod Vegie Swap and the Macleod Organic Community Garden and Tool Library. We run regular workshops and social events too.


Macleod Organic Community Garden

Macleod Organic Community Garden is gardened communally, growing a wide range of vegetables, berries, orchard fruit and herbs. There are no individual plots but everyone who comes to the garden is involved in planning, gardening, growing seedlings or getting involved in other projects.


Covid 19

Due to the current reinstatement of restrictions on gatherings and movement, we have no alternative but to continue to keep the Macleod Organic Community Garden closed. The Macleod Vegie Swap will also not go ahead for now. When restrictions are lifted, we will assess how we can safely re-open, using the best available advice.

In the meantime, we would ask everyone to take all the recommended precautions and keep yourselves and others safe.

All produce from the community garden is being donated to BANSIC for distribution to those in need.
