Description

This guide is a useful tool for anyone planning a new garden or place-making project or looking to re-energise existing food and other garden projects in remote areas.

Commissioned by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, the guide aims to help people to consider the range of garden opportunities that may exist in their community. It also provides planning considerations for the development, design and delivery of sustainable garden projects. It may be useful for program and policy officers who are involved in funding or providing other forms of support to garden programs in remote communities.

The guide contains useful building blocks to start small and build successful gardens. It features a variety of garden options to help to choose the right garden for different groups and places.

Design considerations that can help in the planning of sustainable garden projects are presented in five inter-related parts:
