Setup a Community Garden

At this point in time our resource are limited and we concentrate all our efforts on supporting those communities with the greatest need and the highest level of disadvantage. However, you might consider the following hints to getting started:

  • determine the degree of interest existing within your local community and, if necessary, investigate ways of stimulating further interest 
  • locate a suitable site. Find out who owns it, outline the project and seek approval to use the site.
  • come up with a design for the garden
  • seek assistance from relevant authorities such as your Local Council or Landcare group.
