Imagine a super fresh veggie market at your doorstep where little ones are free to play and interact with nature… we can make that happen with your help!
Fawkner Food Bowls is in the run for some big government funding and we need you to vote online to help us secure it.

The vision for our local community garden is to create a food hub including a market garden, sharing skills through workshops and a space for some good old socialising.
A chunk of the grant we’re in the run for is to create nature-inspired play structures for kids, pop up food events and a program for local schools.
The universal theme of food is perfect for our diverse and truly multicultural community that crosses over several generations too.
Did you know that 51% of Fawkner residents have fruit or vegetables growing in their gardens but we have the highest food insecurity in Moreland?
Our garden will bring the community of backyard food growers together with new residents in skill-sharing initiatives and opportunities to build community.
In short, it will be a fantastic food, learning and socialising hub.
SUNDAY 19 AUGUST – GARDEN IS OPEN 10AM TO 1PM
The winter sun graced us again last weekend and we slowed down a little to enjoy it. If the sun gods aren’t on our side this week, we’ll be in the garden come rain or shine.
The plan is to build another row and start planting springtime fruit and veg. Pop down for a bit of gardening or pop along with your kitchen scraps for the worms and compost.
