Community Garden Insurance
Story by Josh Barnes, June 2022
Public liability and volunteer insurance is one of the big annual costs for community gardens. That is why CGA sought to find options for its members.
We asked you what kind of cover you needed and how happy you were with your current provider. Most gardens responded that they were happy with their current arrangements. Some are even covered for free by government insurance (Adelaide; Queensland) under land management schemes.
Given the number of gardens that might take up a group scheme through CGA, we found the premiums could not beat the prices gardens were already paying. As a result of these inquiries, CGA has resolved to put its efforts into lobbying for all states to give community gardens free cover.
In the meantime here are a couple of options our members recommend and if you discover a good deal, please let us know so we can pass it on.
