City of Sydney review of community gardening documents
The City of Sydney is reviewing its documents on community gardening in its local government area. The documents under review are:
- Community Gardens Policy
- Community Garden Guidelines
- Preferred Materials For Use In Community Gardens.
The submission period ended in July. The Australian City Farms & Community Gardens Network has made a submission proposing improvements to the three documents.
Many of these are minor, seeking clarification. Others propose further thought be put to what are in-principle good ideas so that, were they to be adopted, they would have a better chance of being successful.
The submission was produced by members of the Australian City Farms & Community Gardens Network’s Sydney team and was done as a Network advocacy initiative.
