Community gardens network.

There is a community gardens group started recently to help people set up food gardens in suburban areas.
The website (what there is of it so far) is WA community gardens network.
There are some good workshops and forums on in the near future about how to implement more food growing in the city and surrounds. It's good that this sort of thing is going on as many people need to get help to grow fresh food.
Perth is one of the most isolated cities in the world, as far as distance from other populated places goes. We really need to reduce our reliance on carbon based transport systems. Growing more food locally will help with the transition.
They are closely working with this mob from over east, Community gardens, who have been supporting community gardening for some time and have a wealth of knowledge on their website.
