Edible Pocket Gardens are a free range style of garden where residents can nominate to use a small section of their local park or reserve to plant edible plants.
They are a great way of increasing the amount of fresh produce freely available to the community, without going through the formalities of a community garden.
While community gardens still have their place, it is a quick and easy way that everyone can get involved without much effort.
These type of gardens will create opportunities for those that may not have access to fresh fruit and vegetables to receive vital nutrients they would otherwise go without. It also gives community service organisations the opportunity to engage with disadvantaged groups through the growing and cultivating of produce.
If you are interested in creating your own Edible Pocket Garden, please view the policy and guidelines for more information on how to get started.
