Why is the User Agreement being renewed?
Community garden groups in our area sign user agreement contracts with Woollahra Council and report to Council about their activities. Periodically Council is required to review the licence agreement and request feedback from the community.
Where is the garden located and when was it established?
The garden is located next to Woollahra Park at the end of Manion Ave, Rose Bay. It is adjacent to the Woollahra Colleagues Rugby Union fields and Woollahra Golf Club. The garden was established in October 2014.
What does the garden consist of and will there be any changes to the size or function of the garden?
The garden site is fenced and includes individual garden plots, communal plots, a multifunctional meeting space, chicken run, shed, bee platform and compost hub.
The community garden group intend to continue with similar activities and programs that have been running in the same area since 2014.
Who can use the garden and how can I get involved?
You can apply to become a member of the garden through Rose Bay Community Garden website. As with many Community Gardens, there are requirements to attend workshops and working bees to be eligible for membership. The garden also hosts a range of events each year that are open to the community. You can keep up to date with events by viewing Rose Bay Community Garden website and Facebook page.
