COVID-SAFE GUIDELINES

Updated 27th August 2021

Visiting the garden under the Stay Safe Directions

Attending the gardens is for the purpose of growing and harvesting fresh food only.

We must maintain a register of members to the gardens for EVERY SINGLE PERSON that enters the garden to ensure we don’t exceed numbers allowed. We are still only opening these bookings up to members of MCG/our gardens.

There is a maximum limit of 2 people from 1 household allowed to be in the gardens at one time. This means that particularly on busy weekends, please stay within your allotted time and be considerate of others.

Additionally, for singles, they may attend the garden under the singles bubble rule where they may nominate 1 person outside their household to visit the garden with.

We are using a spreadsheet to book times at the gardens. The links to these have been emailed to members. ALSO you must check in at the garden using the QR code.

 

You should not visit the garden if you are sick.

You can only visit the garden if:

  • You are a member

  • You have booked a timeslot

  • You are not unwell, isolating or waiting test results

  • It is within your 5km zone

  • You check-in using the QR code

At all times while in the garden you must:

  • Wear a mask

  • Adhere to hygiene guidance provided under Staying Safe

  • Use sanitiser when entering/exiting the garden, clean and disinfect high touch surfaces regularly, including hoses etc. 

  • Bring your own water bottle / cup for drinking and take them home again.

  • Sheds will be allowed to be opened, there is only 1 person allowed in the shed at a time and everything used must be sanitised after use. Sanitiser/wipes are available at the gardens.

After the lockdown is over, gardens will return to COVID normal open settings. Please ensure you use the QR code to check in and do not exceed gathering number limits.

Keep an eye on the calendar on this website for information about events when we can safely meet again. We will also post updates on Facebook:
