In 2019, the second Kevin Heinze Grow site opened at Peppertree Place, an amazing community oasis situated on the corner of Bell Street and Sydney Road in the heart of Coburg. For 40,000 years this area formed part of the lands of the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation.
On this site you will find a well-stocked nursery that sells plants to the public, a delightful café in a unique garden setting, and a community-powered garden that produces food for the café and provides a whole range of nature-based experiences for our participants, staff, volunteers and the broader community.
What you might not notice at first glance is that the activities taking place on-site are specifically designed to help people grow.
Most of the plants in the nursery are produced by participants in the Kevin Heinze Grow therapeutic horticulture programs under the supervision of qualified horticulturists and our dedicated volunteers.
