Connecting gardens, groups and growers to create a more resilient food future in Darebin

Northcote Library Food Garden and Darebin Council MoU

The Northcote Library Food Garden (NLFG) and Darebin Council collaborated to develop a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which has been in place since August 2013.

The MoU has been useful for both Council and the NLFG group to understand the expectations, roles and responsibilities each party has in the management and operation of the garden. The NLFG is an excellent example of a open, welcoming and inclusive place where people can learn about sustainable gardening practices and connect with their community through the shared cultivation and harvesting of fresh organically grown local produce.

A copy of the MoU is attached here as a reference for any community garden groups looking at formalising an agreement with Council or other landowner.
