Welcome to The Mulch Pit, a place for growing food and fun.  The Mulch Pit is a permaculture community garden hosted by Nightcliff Uniting Church.  We offer both container plots loved by locals growing their own and communal garden areas where everyone can join in our working bees and share the harvest.  Use our map to find your way around!

Our community working bees are a great way to meet other gardeners, share information, get your hands dirty and enjoy each others sweaty company.  If you're after a plot to grow your own, check out our Info & Sign-Up Section for our Guidelines and Membership forms.

The best way to keep up to date with our activities and events is to check our blog or FaceBook page.  Broadly, we meet as a community at these times.

FRIDAY FRIENDZI'S - Community working bees on Friday evenings from 5pm - featuring a speedy makeover or project with a specific focus, that benefits the communal garden areas.  

'COMMUNITY CHEF' COOKING NIGHTS - Every two months on the first Friday from 5pm, we pick produce from the garden and turn it into a fresh feast. Find our recipes here.

'SATURDAY PLATTER DAY' -  from 8.30am there's always something to do and someone to meet in the garden.  Bring your excess produce for the Pit Produce Swap.  Then stay for a fair trade coffee or tea at Frilly's!

'PERMIE PLANNING' MEETINGS - At 10am on the third Saturday each month- where Plotters and Schemers and Friends of TMP get to contribute ideas and make decisions.

If you can't join us at one of these times, check out the communication board for jobs you can do when it suits you! 

"There is enough for all.  The earth is a generous mother;

she will provide in plentiful abundance food

for all her children if they will but cultivate her soil

in justice and in peace."   Bourke Coekran
