Open Gardens Victoria Inc is a not-for-profit organisation formed in 2015 to continue the long tradition of opening private gardens throughout Victoria following the closure of Open Gardens Australia.
Do you love gardens? Do you have some spare time?Open Gardens Victoria is recruiting volunteers!
Have you noticed tiny productive gardens popping up in the city in the most unlikely places? Indoor spaces, balconies, courtyards, nature strips, roofs and community plots are being used across Melbourne to grow plants and food.
Over the past few months, we’ve been lucky enough to see some wonderfully bountiful gardens up close. As part of OGV’s Green City initiative, and thanks to a grant from the Lord’s Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, we teamed up with 3000acres - a group that encourages people in urban communities grow food for themselves - to open a range of productive backyards in the inner suburbs.
