Brisbane City Council’s Cultivating Community Gardens Grants provide funding to local non-profit community-based groups and organisations to establish, develop and/or maintain community gardens on Council-owned and other land.

Community organisations eligible for the grant receive $1000 to $2,500 in funding.

Organisations can use the funding for different types of projects, such as buying tools or material for their gardens, services relating to the maintenance of the garden, or publicity and programs that increase wider community involvement and education about the gardens and their activities.
