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.

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