Garden visit applications are currently closed.
In 2022, Garden guides have started doing garden visits across Hume City. Garden Guides are community volunteers who are formally screened and trained by Council.
Hume City Council uses the online SmartyGrants system to administer our garden visits. In each round, 20 to 30 people can apply to have a garden visit and then the round is closed to further applications. Assistance in applying for a garden visit can be provided if required.
All of the garden visits are conducted and reports provided before the next round opens.

When a round is open, you will be notified by email that your application has been received.
A Garden Guide contacts the participants to arrange and confirm garden visits. Please be patient as it may a few months to progress through the participant list.
Garden visits can be scheduled any day of the week, in the morning or afternoon.
To stay informed, sign up to Live Green eNews or submit your contact details using the interactive Organise a Garden Visit brochure. You will be notified when the next round is opening.
