The Department of Local Government and Communities offers funding through the Community Gardens Grants Program. Funding of up to $10,000 per community garden is available to plan, develop and implement a community garden project.
Community gardens provide the opportunity to develop greater understanding between neighbours, parents and young people from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds. This program encourages community members to:
- participate in community life more actively
- connect with the environment and other people within their community
- implement and develop their skills
- give back to the community.
Find out more about community gardens by visiting the community gardens page of this website.
Please refer to the Department of Local Government's website for further information about this program and application details.
