A group of local residents have lodged an application with Bayside Council to establish a community garden in the Bonar Street Reserve, Sans Souci.
To be called the Sans Souci Community Veggie Patch, the proposed community garden will include eight raised shared garden beds, compost bins and worm farms for organic waste, seating and a small shed.
The community garden will be implemented in stages as membership increases.
Membership is open to the public via application and will be capped at 30.
The Sans Souci Community Veggie Patch’s group vision is to create a safe, welcoming place for people to meet, learn and grow an edible garden.
The operational model and Plan of Management has been put together with the assistance of the Australian City Farms and Community Gardens Network, a community-based organisation linking people interested in community gardening across Australia.
Bayside Council is asking to hear from the community on their thoughts on the Sans Souci Community Veggie Patch.
Residents can view the Plan of Management which has been developed by the applicants. The plan covers membership types, responsibilities of gardeners, risks, dispute resolution and other garden processes as well as a garden plan.

The last day to give feedback is December 6.
