When would the garden be built?

In light of community support, the City of Cockburn has provided in principle support for the proposal and final design. The next step will be to establish a license agreement. This agreement must be in place prior to works commencing on the garden. Once an agreement is in place, the garden project will be delivered and maintained by the Coogee Community Garden Group WA.

Who would have access to the garden?

The garden is a community managed project. In order to grow vegetables and collect produce, the community residents would need to be a member of the Coogee Community Garden Group WA.  Contact the Coogee Community Garden Group WA for more information.

Who would manage and maintain the garden?

It is envisaged that maintenance will be shared amongst volunteers and members of the Coogee Community Garden WA. However, anyone that visits would be encouraged to do their bit to help ensure the garden remains a neat, tidy and sustainable place for everyone to enjoy.

How did this idea come about?

The proposal was first raised in a Coogee Beach Progress Association meeting. The Coogee Community Garden WA has been incorporated since November 2018 as a not-for-profit group.

How would the garden be funded?

All costs associated with the garden would be the responsibility of the Coogee Community Garden WA (through donations, grants and funding).
