The Open Garden scheme has just announced details on their 2009 grants program for community gardens. This gives cash to community gardens across Australia that are of ” lasting benefit to the local and wider community” and are “accessible to the public on a permanent or semi-permanent basis”.
I think it’s wonderful that there is money available for these gardens. At this point we’re pretty busy on our own private garden, so I don’t think we’ll be applying this year. 🙂
There are also plenty of good inner-West community gardens nearby (but you can’t have too many!).
