Community Gardening in Glen Eira

Thank you for your participation, the consultation has concluded. Please refer to the update on the right hand side for recent news. 

Glen Eira City Council wants to explore community gardening options with interested community members.

Community gardens are places where people come together to grow and cultivate produce. Community gardens can provide a range of benefits to individuals, communities and the environment:

  • provide communities with access to fresh and nutritious food, encourage people to be physical activity and can build social connections and build a sense of community and belonging.
  • environmental benefits are waste reduction, composting opportunities improving air quality and regenerate public spaces.

Traditionally community gardens are on land owned by local government, schools, churches and community centres. There are two types of community gardens; shared gardens where participants share the gardening and the harvest or allotment gardens where participants garden their own plot and share the maintenance of common areas.

Community gardening can include diverse forms of growing spaces, such as planter boxes on footpaths in central activity districts, gardens on verges and backyard sharing initiatives.

There are numerous ways to give your feedback:

  • complete the community gardening Survey
  • attend our consultation forum (see details to the right)
  • suggest your ideas on the Ideas Bank
  • map existing and suggested locations for community gardens
  • call the Community Development team on 9524 3333
  • email us at mail@gleneira.vic.gov.au.
