Nic reveals why Kickstart Arts Community Garden works so well…
Effective organisation and participatory, democratic decision making are critical to community gardens that want to persist and thrive.
After visiting Kickstart Arts Community Garden in Hobart’s New Town, Russ Grayson came away with the impression that it is heading in that direction. He asked the community garden’s Nic Stephen about how they manage the garden.
In response, Nic spoke about:
- how Kickstart is managed
- member agreements and guidelines
- how Kickstart makes decisions
- how Kickstart plans to deal with conflict
- challenges, what has worked well, and opportunities
- how to join Kickstart:

David Stephen talks about rapid composting
Can too much compost be an embarrassment? David Stephens thinks so.
David is something of a compost expert, so I suppose he should know. Russ Grayson caught up with David at October’s open day at Kickstart Arts Community Garden in New Town, Hobart, where he had a few words to say about rapid hot compositing.
