This is the website for Sustainable Macleod Inc. we also have a dedicated website for our community garden at 

Sustainable Macleod is part of the worldwide Transition Movement. Projects by Sustainable Macleod have included a highly successful Vegie Swap, now in its seventh year, the Macleod Organic Community Garden, established in 2015 and a yearly local auction and sale of plants raised in the Garden.

In April 2018, Sustainable Macleod and Transition  Banyule jointly hosted  “Transition to a Safe Climate: creating a new story for Banyule”, which lead to the establishment of several working groups which are developing projects to be implemented in the local community.

The Garden is maintained communally by members of Sustainable Macleod. We aim to turn it into a hub of community activity, with a space to run workshops alongside productive wicking beds and an orchard of fruit trees. For more information about the Garden, click here.

We are very grateful to Banyule City Council for funding and support for this project through the grants we have received.

We are also like to thank the RSL for the grants received for our Defibrillator, Safety gear and Garden Edging.

Many thanks also to Bendigo Bank, which has also donated a Poly Tunnel for raising our seedlings.

Macleod College is very supportive and provides us with our wonderful space. Come and check out their meditation garden next to our community garden.
