To operate a sustainable community allotment garden through memberships and community events and education. Provide a community resource on sustainable gardening, healthy eating, and biodiversity.
Hello all! Our group of active members has spent a lot of time debating and discussing how to bring new life into the Community Garden in the car park at Shoreline Greystones. We all feel that it is a precious gift to the community and we want to make sure it is well utilised as a place to live more sustainable lives, share wisdom and food, and make connections between people and nature.
We have begun the process of renovating the garden and constructing numerous raised based for members. We favour a co-op type model, where members pay an annual fee which entitles the member to a raised bed for the year. Members can vote meetings and also get first dibs on renewing for the following year. A system like this is needed to keep it going for years to come and to build the type of community that the garden was intended to support.
