Community Garden Toolkit

The City of Armadale recognises community gardens as an important part of any community. They can serve as engagement hubs for social interaction and promote environmental improvement, food security and a sharing economy. Well planned and managed community gardens can achieve important objectives for the community’s wellbeing, health and sustainability.

This toolkit complements Council’s policy COMD9 – Community Gardens and associated Management Practice, both available on the City’s website here. The policy and management practice demonstrate Council’s support for and approach to the provision, development and management of community gardens.
