Community Gardens

Here are three examples of community based gardens which I have been working on.

SEEDs at Milparinka

The mission of SEEDs is to grow natural networks, mutual opportunities, friendships, organic food, and community.

It is located in the garden of Milparinka, a disability support day centre.

331 Albert St. Brunswick.

After the initial consultation process I came up with this design, with a view to transforming under-utilised existing lawn areas into productive, functional, and beautiful spaces.

The implementation is being undertaken in stages, two out of three of which are complete and plants are growing.

Most work to date has been completed at large working bee events, drawing on the power of the already vibrant Milparinka community.

Here are some before and after(during) aerial photos of the site showing some of the initial changes.


I have designed this school garden in St. Albans for the kitchen garden program. (Click to enlarge)
