All Saints' Selby, a small parish in the Dandenong Ranges, has created Gethsemane and Easter gardens as a witness to the local community.

"The terraces in the garden were utilised to construct Golgotha with pathway leading to the tomb. On Easter Day the stone was, of course, rolled away. Inside the church, a small Easter garden was placed under the lectern. Gethsemane and Easter gardens are popular installations in English churches," says parishioner Felicity Podger.
