Members are eligible, but not obliged, to rent a garden bed for $40 per annum beginning on 1 July each year.
Supporting each other in the Garden
Life gets in the way sometimes. For all of us. So if you’re going away or unable to tend your garden bed for whatever reason, just let us know. There are members who are happy to keep an eye on your bed, water and do whatever else is required until you get back.
And if we haven’t seen you for a while we’ll give you a call, just to see if you’re OK. We aim to be a supportive garden community.

Goulburn Community Garden Child Safe Policy
We want the Garden be a place for all ages where children (under the age of 18) are
made welcome and encouraged to learn and practice sound gardening methods, a
place of friendly interaction between young and old and where children may enjoy
the results of their efforts and care.
All children, must at all times, be the direct responsibility of the parent or
guardian who brings them to the Goulburn Community Garden.
