Community Gardens


Community gardening is happening globally and in most local council areas surrounding Logan City. Those of us who want to grow, learn to grow healthy food in our local areas, and share our gardening skills, will with the adoption of this proposed community gardening policy be able to access council owned / controlled land for this purpose.

Logan now is proposing to support community gardening - growing food crops to support the gardeners who havest what they sow. The 5 page draft policy can be read and /or downloaded here.

Supporting documentation 14 pages is available here.
