The Garden of Scare Cow and Birdman

During a recent visit to St Kilda, I dropped into the Veg Out Community Garden. It is a community plot garden primarily for local apartment dwellers who do not have access to green space to grow veggies. The plots are located on what was once a lawn bowl club’s greens. The garden is clean, well maintained and supported. The garden rows and plots have a number of sculptures and artwork either made by the plot gardeners or the local artists working from studios located in the grounds. The artwork can be quite eclectic and eccentric. It is well worth the visit and a great place to have some takeaway lunch from the local delis and cafes in Acland St.

Scare Cow – not sure whether the cow would scare off birds or not but it certainly had me looking twice as I walked past
