Australia’s City of Bayswater approves ‘edible pocket garden’ policyPeople of the City of Bayswater can now grow fresh produce at parks; the Council approved an edible pocket garden policy last week. At the January 24 committee meeting, councillors passed the policy, which involved residents seeking approval for the site and growing fruit, vegetables and herbs.
The site is to be prepared and maintained by the residents, who will not own the produce. The gardens are not fenced off, as opposed to community gardens, and can be accessed by the public.
Deputy Mayor Chris Cornish said this policy followed the City’s street verges policy. “The aim of these gardens is for edible produce to be grown and shared amongst local residents, which fosters a greater sense of community and also encourages more gardens to be grown in our City.”
According to a communitynews.com article, Councillor Sally Palmer said with “high zone living” expected to be built across the City, there was a need for open space where people could “move with nature”.
