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.


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.
