The Kensington Community Garden has been upgraded following the discovery of contaminated soil in the existing gardens. The gardens were closed until the site was ameliorated and new plots constructed. The redevelopment involved extensive consultation with the current plot-holders. As well as dealing with existing claims and their high production expectations, the design continues the history of plot subdivision on the site, and is an interesting microcosm of the speculative development of Melbourne.
