Spring Ridge Commons Work Party with Brent Howard, Professional Landscaper

Please consider coming out to this work party and supporting the Commons even if it is just for 1/2 an hour……..


Spring Ridge Commons is needing TLC and this is your opportunity to help out in the garden by weeding out the grass and other invasive plants, placing wood chips on pathways in the Commons and possibly doing some sheet-mulching. We’ll be continuing to do work along the perimeters of Gladstone Avenue.

About Spring Ridge Commons: Spring Ridge Commons is Victoria’s oldest and largest public permaculture garden or community multi-layer food forest, located at the corner of Chambers and Gladstone. Site of an Spring Ridge Elementary Schoolhouse from 1887 to 1968, Spring Ridge Commons is an example of what is possible when you start with a gravel parking lot in a relatively low-income area near the city centre.
Designed as a permaculture demonstration site, Spring Ridge Commons contains over 100 species of plants, many of which have food and/or medicinal value. A home for many native birds and insects, the commons is intended to be a place where community members can meet, engage and grow on land held in common, by everyone.
