Our Vision

North West Patch believes in creating open space within North and West Melbourne for the use of growing fresh edible plants with organic practices.

We are aware that many people in the area do not have access to a garden space of their own to grow food. We would like to change this.

Our first project is the North Melbourne Meat Market space. This space includes 10 1x1 meter wicking boxes, which are shared between members. We have a vision to extend beyond this space into the streets of West and North Melbourne.

Membership fees

* Please note that membership has now been capped at 25 members, if you would like to join the waiting list please let us know.

North West Patch derives its funding from member fees, annual subscriptions, donations, fund-raising activities, and grants.

Membership fees ensure that the garden can continue to thrive and be a place for everyone to enjoy. Membership also gives you access to garden in the space as well as produce from the garden.
