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.
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.
