Community garden grants

The Department of Local Government and Communities offers funding through the Community Gardens Grants Program.

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
  • use their skills
  • give back to the community.

Find out more about community gardens by visiting the community gardens page of this website.

Existing community gardens may apply for funding of up to $10 000 and new community gardens may apply for funding of up to $20 000.

Prior to submitting an application, please contact Ms Gemma Turner, Senior Grants Officer, at the Department of Communities on (08) 6551 8700 or at, to discuss the project proposal.
