What does sustainable community gardening mean to us?

For us, sustainable community gardening aims to:

  • Support people in our neighbourhoods to grow their own food
  • Protect and improve the land and the soil in ways that sustain ecological integrity and encourage greater biodiversity
  • Enhance local communities by creating socially equitable gardens which provide beauty and enjoyment and act as network hubs and learning spaces
  • Manage people, materials and money to ensure ongoing maintenance, minimal waste, and future growth.
  • Promote living in harmony with nature, being aware of sustainable choices, caring for place, people and planet
  • Provide for the future success and continued existence of the organisation, by building individual gardens and greater organisational capacity so that we can manage the ongoing work of the venture.
