Community Garden - Inglewood Oval

Consultation has concluded

Closed for comment 22 March 2019

The City of Stirling would like to hear your thoughts about developing a community garden in an area of unused land at Inglewood Oval.

Proposed and driven by a committed group of Inglewood and Mount Lawley residents, the community garden would be run and managed by the local community and supported by the City of Stirling.

To help the City assess the suitability of a community garden in this location, please provide your feedback via the submission form below by 22 March 2019.

What is a community garden?

Community gardens are places where people come together to grow fresh food, to learn new skills and make new friends. Community gardens are typically on public land and are run, maintained and used by the community.

Community gardens typically consist of vegetable beds and planter boxes, fruit trees, waste disposal systems such as compost and habitat for wildlife including logs and water features. However, it isn’t all about gardening! Community gardens can also be places to meet, or to teach or learn new skills.

What are the benefits of a community garden?

Social benefits include providing communities with access to fresh food, knowledge on how to grow food and plants, encouraging physical activity, building social connections and sense of community.

Environmental benefits include waste reduction, supporting wildlife, and regenerating public spaces.

To have your say please complete the submission form below by 22 March 2019.
