The Tasmanian Community Food Garden
The Tasmanian Community Food Garden is as a long term, supported, model community food garden at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens (RTBG) that involves a wide cross-section of community groups and also supports existing external community food gardens.
The model garden provides a planned and managed garden production zone with garden areas allocated to community groups, schools and community organisations; community representatives are able to design, develop and maintain their area with direct support, mentorship and ongoing management assistance from RTBG horticulturists’ food specialists and other expert staff.
It also demonstrates best practice and sustainability; serves as a centre for networking, sharing of experience and mentoring as well as providing outreach programs both onsite, and offsite. There are future plans for it to will form the home base for online training to assist communities across the state with their production gardens and food use. See more detail:
