A Guide – planning considerations and project opportunities

Food and other gardens in and about remote communities

Commissioned by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, the guide is a useful tool for anyone planning a new garden or place-making project or looking to re-energise existing food and other garden projects in remote areas. The main focus of the guide is the mix of design, planning and management considerations, and process steps to help build strong projects so that people can enjoy more amenable, healthy environments and grow healthy food at home or in and around their community in different ways” said Anthea. Design considerations that can help in the planning of sustainable garden projects are presented in five inter-related parts:  Natural resources; Community ownership – participatory planning and design; Social and cultural factors; Technical considerations and Strategic project planning and management
