This is the website for Sustainable Macleod Inc. we also have a website for our community garden at www.mocg.club
The Macleod Organic Community Garden was established in 2015 with most of the construction
taking place during the 2016/2017 year, we have a great site on two disused tennis courts at Macleod College, the garden is an initiative of Sustainable Macleod Inc. 2017 has seen the addition of a tool library for members.
It is gardened communally by members of Sustainable Macleod. We aim to turn it into a hub of community activity, with a space to run workshops alongside productive wicking beds and an orchard of fruit trees. For more information about the Garden, click here.
In Winter it will be open every Wednesday (weather permitting) from 1 – 5 and every Saturday from 1 – 5 pm. Come and garden or just join us for a cuppa in a beautiful tranquil setting. During daylight saving we also open most Monday nights from 5pm to 7pm come and enjoy.
