Herbert Street reclamation this Sunday!

The Northcote big block blitz is on this Sunday. Emily Ballantyne-Brodie and Lucas from Libertas Gardens have been scavenging like giant bower birds: crates from Coburg Market for planter boxes, carpet donated by Merri Corner Community Garden for pathways, soil from the nearby reclaimed curb on Nash Street. And, never fear, Lucas has the bananas.

See more details of the reclamation here, including the wish list. We’re seeking more dirt, compost and plants, good old garden furniture and bed edging, among other things. If you’d like to come and be there for lunch, please RSVP to reclaimthecurb@gmail.com. And of course, if you get the urge for some diggin’ on the day, just hop down to Herbert Street, 10 am till 4 pm.


See you beneath the apple tree.
