Individual garden bed
There is currently a waiting list for plot allocations to grow vegetables and flowers in your own individual garden bed.
Nominate on your membership application to be assigned an individual garden bed as one becomes available.
Once allocated a garden bed, you pay the annual garden bed fee to get started.
The individual garden bed fee payment entitles you to a dedicated garden bed. The fee is used to provide fertiliser and garden equipment.
