Dig In Community Garden

Called in to the monthly working bee and gathering at Dig In at Murphy's Reserve and came away with an armful of beautiful produce. I found out about what grows best and the challenges of roots and possums. Everyone I spoke to couldn't speak highly enough about being part of Dig In which 'encourages co-operative consideration for people and environmental sustainability for the land'. Dig In gardeners are seriously concerned about crossing Williamstown Road, especially with young children at either hand and would love to see a safe way for pedestrians to cross. Dig In is an activity of the Port Melbourne Neighbourhood House, and I was told there is a 2 year waiting list.
