Hume City Council uses the online SmartyGrants system to administer our garden visits. Assistance in applying for a garden visit can be provided if required.
The first round is now open. Click the image below to apply for a garden visit.

The round will be closed when 20 to 30 people have applied. The number of garden visits offered each round is limited, as the program relies on the availability of a small number of volunteer Garden Guides. You will be notified that your application has been received.
A Garden Guide will contact you to arrange and confirm your garden visit as they progress through the participant list. Please be patient as this may take some time. All garden visits will be conducted before the next SmartyGrants round is opened.
Garden visits can be scheduled any day of the week, in the morning or afternoon.
Garden Guides are community volunteers who are formally screened and trained by Council. You can be comfortable about them visiting your home, school or business.
