Rushall Garden is a community garden situated on former railway land in Fitzroy North, Victoria in inner suburban Melbourne, Australia. It is licensed to and managed by The North Fitzroy Community Gardens Group. Membership of the NCGG is open to any member of the community, but a condition of the license is that priority in allocation of garden plots is given to residents of the Cities of Yarra and Darebin.

The NFCGG aims are to enhance the sustainability of the North Fitzroy community by:

  • Respecting prior ownership of the land by Indigenous Australians;
  • Maintaining attractive urban space where people can grow plants predominantly for food and which is accessible to the local community to enjoy;
  • Promoting sustainable organic horticultural techniques and fostering the sharing and development of a diversity of gardening skills;
  • Managing the garden by consensus in an open, participatory and non-discriminatory manner.

Location[edit]

Rushall Garden is in the Thomas Kidney Reserve on Rushall Crescent (behind the grassy knoll at the end of Kneen Street). Rushall railway station is nearby.
