Postgraduate students and staff from Central Queensland University (CQU) have developed a concept for a social enterprise community garden in the south Park Lands. The university has a campus on Greenhill Road and offers a permaculture course.

The CQU proposal for a community garden received in-principle support from Council in December 2016, subject to:

  • The site being unfenced and limited in extent to a maximum of 1,200 square metres
  • One-third of the site being reserved for unrestricted general community use
  • On-site vehicle access being limited to service vehicles only and not for workers, volunteers or those visiting the site
  • The City of Adelaide or delegate having a position on the board of management of the controlling body.

It is envisaged that the garden will be well-designed, sympathetic to the surrounds (including adjacent remnant biodiversity areas) and also respond to the local community’s needs.

Feedback received from the community will be used to inform the proposed garden plan and design, operating details and licence arrangements.
