The Collingwood Community Garden allotments have been tended by residents living in the area for over four decades on a ¾ acre block of Crown Land Reserve along the Birrarung (Yarra) River in Naarm/Melbourne (Australia), and adjacent to the Collingwood Children’s Farm. In May 2021 the gardens were abruptly closed, citing safety concerns. In February 2022 the gardens were cleared for redevelopment by the Committee of Management of the Collingwood Children’s Farm, against the wishes of the community gardeners. The images of the gardens were made during the lockout when no one had been in the gardens for six months.
