Council is proposing to renew the user agreement we have with Paddington Community Garden Incorporated for use of the current garden site. As part of the renewal process we are required to put this proposal on public exhibition.

The Community Garden was established in 2009 and provides a lush garden space for the local community to come together, grow organic fruit and vegetables, celebrate sustainability and share their time, experience and produce.

The garden has over 50 gardeners, 27 individual plots and 10 team plots for shared community produce. Regular events include monthly gatherings, 'how to' workshops and education sessions to help members and the broader community understand the principles for growing sustainable organic produce with a small urban foot print. This garden was built by volunteers with support from Woollahra Council to form an urban oasis. It's busy, it's fun, it's relaxing.

We recognise the dedicated efforts of the community garden members who have contributed to these significant achievements over the past ten years. We are very supportive of the garden and hope to see it continue and flourish into the future.

We invite you to provide your feedback about the proposed renewal of this agreement so the area can continue to be used as a community garden. You can have your say by clicking on the Submit Feedback tab below.
