In maintaining our garden and opening it up to the community, we need certain infrastructure and insurance in place:
public liability insurance (approx $30 per year per small plot)
lawn mowing, raking, weeding, pruning, trimming and tip fees
wood preservation oils for shed, shelter
sand for sandpit
replacement tools and maintenance of wheel barrows
We rely on plot fees and working bees to cover all these areas.
2022/23 plot fees and working bee obligations under the SHSC Gardener's Agreement:
4 working bees per year working on community maintenance and composting; OR
4 sessions of community garden maintenance outside working bee times (pre-arrange this with the Garden Committee - send email proposal to: email@example.com); OR
$40 working bee waiver (no need to attend any working bees).
PLUS annual plot fees -
$50 in July ($35 Services Australia Health Care Cardholders) for small plot
$85 in July ($70 Services Australia Health Care Cardholders) for large plot
People who are allocated a plot from January onwards have 2 working bees and 50% of plot fees due.
