Cultural centre garden- create a reason for people to make good use of a space.
How can community gardens be best designed to accommodate other social and civic functions? How open are councils to this?
What interesting fact stood out for you?
Community gardens can draw attention to groups such as Perth City Farm and their stalls through business promotion.
No malicious damage has ever occurred at the cultural centre City Orchard garden in Perth City. We need to include non food production spaces for example frog ponds for biodiversity.
