We’re passionate about avoiding food waste, which is partly why the 3rd Sunday of the month Food Share was started. Some people have suggested there may owners of fruit trees (or other edibles) out there who have more than they can cope with. Happy to say we can help out. We’ve assembled a bunch of volunteers who are willing to help harvest and share the crop.
Please spread the word and if you know anyone who needs help contact the Fruit Tree Squad by email: email@example.com
Hills Food Share
Got a glut of oranges, or zucchini coming out your ears? Then join us to share your excess garden produce, seeds, seedlings, cuttings, plants, gardening magazines, handmade soaps etc.
Everyone welcome. Bring things to share, take what you can use. No money, just sharing.
Come and meet some locals, share stories, find out what others are growing at the moment and get some tips on how to make your fruit and vegetables happy.
Garden looking a bit bare? Then bring along something for morning tea, or just bring your smile!
Held the third Sunday of every month, 9-10am at
MJ Morgan Reserve (Train Park),
Railway Tce, Glen Forrest.

This movie was mega popular when Transition Town Guildford screened recently, so we decided there was room for one more local chance to view. Come and prepare yourself for the upcoming Christmas consumer onslaught. By donation. See details on Events listing on sidebar.
No Money, No Power, No Waste — that was the ethos behind The Festival of Forgotten Skills down at the Glen Forrest Community Garden. We were proud to be part of what turned out to be a HUGE SUCCESS. Congratulations to the organisers for a fabulous community event. Everything donated and free. Free demos of spinning, crocheting, papermaking, pruning, basketmaking, scithing, wicking boxes and heaps of stuff to SHARE: clothes, seeds, plants and garden produce; kids activities and games. As well as the woodfired pizza demos.Hope I haven’t forgotten any of the amazing community members who showed up to share their skills AND brought their own shade & gear as well. LOCAL LEGENDS.
The Down to Earth mob’s Spring Seed Sharing & Planting (Sat morning 10 Sep) was great fun, as usual. Some hands-on seed raising soil mixing, then share, plant & socialise in that order. Vera explained that the e calendula flowers that were growing there in abundance, could be infused in oil for several weeks to be the base of a healing cream (stay tuned for more cream making)
Couldn’t think of a nicer way to get engaged in your local community than to Adopt-a-Spot like the folks here at The Blue Wren Reserve in Stoneville are inviting you to do. Something all the family would enjoy. Contact Kathryn on 0429 990 861 if you require further information
Amazing weather for our short notice pruning visit to help & learn from Neville & Aglea at their extensive orchard in Mt Helena. Surrounded by mango, avocado, feijoa, grape, kiwi and every description of citrus under the sun … Heaven! Despite the short notice, 10 adults and one little person, tree climber, egg collector 🙂 We started out with a bit of sharpening maintenance then headed to a venerable apple tree to start practicing with Neville’s encouragement “Don’t be afraid to get stuck in!” So we did. Good fun.
