    I was browsing some blogs and saw this post:

    How great is that for street side gardening. I think it’s in Australia. Does anyone have any info about it?


    Good on them :tup:


    It is in Fitzroy in Melbourne.

    It is a wonderful example of the will to give it a go no matter what the circumstances.


    Awesome Michelle. Thank you for the link. 🙂

    It looks like a great project. I’m going to go for a walk along there when I am next in Melbournia.

    PS: Some people here might be interested in the Larder Tales blog – it’s all about gardening and cooking. Some of the recipes are to die for 😉 [And no, I don’t know the author so am not plugging a friend]


    Hulbert Street in Fremantle WA is inspiring, many of the verges have vege planter boxes or gardens but the best bit is at the end of the street. Its a cul de sac and at the end of it there is a bit of council land then a cycle path and then vacant land which used to be a tip site. The street set up what they call their Guerilla Garden on the land between the last houses and the cycle path. Theres a section of native plants, an old fridge worm farm, compost heaps, and raised garden beds made from recycled roof sheeting (I think that there are about 8 beds or so), there were a few productive trees too I think and some herb gardens made using the tops from some papasan chairs.

    There is a pic here and some here



    Love the wheelbarrow cosy!:lol:
