Community garden management

The City of Marion is supportive of community gardens. It is essential that these gardens are based on a strong community commitment and are appropriately located, managed, and connected to the community so they can be sustainable and viable. Below is our Community Gardens Policy and Framework. These document are currently being reviewed and updated guidelines will be available soon.

Community Garden Policy

This policy reflects Council’s commitment to community gardens and provides direction for community gardens through policy principles. This policy relates only to community gardens on Council owned or managed land. This policy is being reviewed and will be updated in the coming year.

Community Garden Framework

This framework provides information and guidelines to assist interested groups and community providers to plan for, develop and manage a community garden, regardless of whether it is on Council land. It aims to ensure community gardens in the City of Marion are based on best practice and will benefit our communities for years to come. This framework is being reviewed and will be updated in the coming year.
