Welcome to Nunawading Community Gardens, comprising two separate garden sites being:
The Gardens are historically significant being the first Community gardens established in Australia in 1977.
Whitehorse Council has land available for residents to rent and garden organically in a social atmosphere. We have a rich diversity of cultures creating a comprehensive range of vegetables, herbs and flowers. Fruit trees grace our perimeter and can be shared by the local community.
Each plot is approximately 4×4.25meters or 4×9.5 meters and produce is for personal consumption.
The Jolimont site has approximately 140 plots.
Members are expected to maintain their gardens to a fair standard without causing concern to neighbouring plots. It is expected that plot holders will maintain paths surrounding their plot, keeping them weed free as well.
Organic principles must be maintained at all times and members are asked to attend two working bees per year.
