You're invited to Have Your Say on the proposed Community Garden at Gloucester.

A community group has been established in Gloucester to develop a community-based garden that will produce fruit, vegetables and herbs as well as other plants grown to organic standards. 

It's hoped, the establishment of the garden will provide an opportunity to share knowledge and skills in gardening techniques and practices while encouraging social networking and community inclusion.

Raised wicking beds will be installed to save water and provide access for elderly and disabled people.

The Gloucester Community Garden aims to have a social focus while demonstrating good sustainable gardening examples that people can use in their own gardens. It is intended for the produce grown to be shared communally with excess being donated to organisations that support individuals in need, The Bucketts Way Neighbourhood Group, Food With Friends, and Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service via the Health Food Store.

The manageable size of the lot will help encourage social mixing and active involvement which is a cornerstone of the education that comes with working alongside knowledgeable gardeners.

Council supports the use of land at Boundary Street Gloucester, Lot 1  DP 842441 (Gloucester District Park) to be the site of the new garden.  This proposed site is adjacent to the north western tennis court boundary fence.

The Gloucester Community Garden will serve around 50 gardeners across all ages and levels of experience. 

If the proposal is successful, interested people can register their interest to be a part of the group at the bottom of the survey.
