Thanks to Steve Hoffner from Wagtail Urban Farm in Adelaide and Network president, Jane Mowbray, for the cover photo.

The City of Sydney is reviewing its documents on community gardening in its local government area. The documents under review are:

  • Community Gardens Policy
  • Community Garden Guidelines
  • Preferred Materials For Use In Community Gardens.

The submission period ended in July. The Australian City Farms & Community Gardens Network has made a submission proposing improvements to the three documents.

Many of these are minor, seeking clarification. Others propose further thought be put to what are in-principle good ideas so that, were they to be adopted, they would have a better chance of being successful.

The submission was produced by members of the Australian City Farms & Community Gardens Network’s Sydney team and was done as a Network advocacy initiative.
