Veg Out Community Garden, St Kilda
Veg Out is an organic, chemical free garden run by volunteers and located in St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia.
The land Veg Out is situated on is administered by the local council for the State of Victoria, and has been permanently reserved for public use since 1881. There are over 140 garden plots, where members, friends, families and community groups enjoy getting their hands into the soil.
A commitment to a sense of community, conservation and organic gardening principles underpins all activities on the site. Unlike most community gardens in Melbourne, Veg Out lacks rigid barriers between common land and each plot; the paths curve and meander; flowers, vegetables and artworks have equal standing; the rabbits, chickens, budgies and quails add yet another dimension.
They’re always looking for extra help with the garden, and Working Bees are held on the first Sunday of every month, and they’re lots of fun and a great way to get involved and meet other workers. There is always plenty to do – see whoever’s in charge, and they’ll help you to find a task. And lunch is served to all workers.
Even if it’s not a Working Bee Sunday, Sundays in general are busy, so just head on down.
