The Eat Well Grow Well Communities (EWGW) Project was a twelve month partnership initiative of Eat Well Tasmania, funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing.

  The project aimed to: 

  • support existing community gardens.
  • provide networking support, information and advice to communities on establishing community gardens.
  • develop a "how to" resource manual and DVD based on the process of establishing a community garden at Glenorchy Primary School and existing gardens in disadvantaged areas.
  • establish a mentoring program.
  • strengthen the Community Garden Network.
  • showcase and celebrate effective models of community gardens with a state gathering.

What is a Community Garden?

A place in a neighbourhood or with an organisation, where people come together and grow food, flowers and herbs, sharing skills, time, resources and have celebrations.

There are different types of Community Gardens.

Community gardens can be a space for people to come together from all ages and backgrounds and creating a culture of care and trust.
