Sprout Community Garden – Open Gate each Thursday 1-4pm

Sprout Community Garden is a recovery focused program of Mind for people recovering from mental illness, drug and alcohol issues or at risk of homelessness that promotes well-being and community strengthening.

Each Thursday from 1-4pm Sprout has an Open Gate for people to come and have a look around and buy organically grown seedlings, produce and other items produced on site.

Sprout also runs a monthly Community Market (except winter). The Market runs on the first Thursday of each month and  has a local and sustainable focus, encouraging local production of arts and crafts, local food production and shopping as well as being a waste free event.  The next market will be on September the 3rd from 3-7pm.

Sprout: 40 Clapham St, Thornbury

There is the opportunity for a  free community stall at each market for local community members to bring down their surplus home produce to sell or swap. If you are interested in having a stall, volunteering or selling surplus produce, or just want general information, please contact us on 9484-5565 or email zwaldstein@mindaustralia.org.au
