Approved by the council in late 2010, the garden was awarded a City of Sydney Matching Grant to cover start-up costs. The garden team produced a management and works plan and the garden was built by the gardeners themselves.
Construction was completed by the end of June 2011. The garden consists of parallel rows of raised garden beds and a number of compost bins. Located in a public reserve, the garden is unfenced.
Ultimo Community Garden is set in a peaceful part of Ultimo open to residents within walking and cycling distance of the garden.
The allotment is comprised of a number of raised beds where community members can plant their own organic herbs and vegetables for their home.
