Setting up a verge garden

These clever little gardens sit between the street and the footpath. Please contact us on 02 9265 9333 or [email protected] if you want help in planning, designing or completing an application for a community or verge garden.

Before you start

We want to help you create your garden and make your community, and our city, greener.

If you have a plan or location in mind, City grants can help kick start your community garden.
