Virtual induction for new members at Pentridge Community Garden
Hello, and welcome to Pentridge Community Garden. We are excited for you join us as a gardening member!
Usually we would like to show you around and give you an induction in person. Unfortunately the pandemic has meant that visitors are restricted. Please read over this page, and watch the linked videos, as they form your virtual induction.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
Attending the garden during COVID-19:
Given the rapidly changing situation in Victoria, updates on how to book a spot and attend the garden will come primarily via email. Please check your inbox or the members’ Facebook group for the latest updates, and ensure you are aware of your obligations under the restrictions before you visit.
If you are unsure, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Access to the garden
The garden is accessible to members at any time during daylight hours. When coronavirus restrictions allow, ‘Open Garden’ sessions happen once a week, and are a great opportunity to meet with other volunteers. For updated times, check our newsletter and Facebook group.
The main gates to the garden and shed are kept locked to prevent vandalism and theft. Your welcome email contains the codes.
