The Department of Local Government and Communities has announced that new round of funding through the Community Gardens Grants Program is now open.

Community gardens provide the opportunity to develop greater understanding between neighbours, parents and young people from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds. This program encourages community members to:

  • participate in community life more actively
  • connect with the environment and other people
  • use their skills
  • give back to the community.

Existing community gardens may apply for funding of up to $10,000 and new community gardens may apply for funding of up to $20,000.

Prior to submitting an application, please contact Ms Gemma Turner, Senior Grants Officer, at the Department of Local Government and Communities on (08) 6552 1643 or at grants@dlgc.wa.gov.au, to discuss the project proposal.

Please refer to the Department’s website for further information about this Program and application details at https://www.dlgc.wa.gov.au/GrantsFunding/Pages/Com....

Applications for this program close at 4pm, Thursday, 20 October 2016.
