Community Gardening In Canberra: Benefits And Challenges
All around the globe, there are a large number of gardens for instance, in North America community garden ranges from the victory garden areas to street beautification planters. Additionally, in many places around Europe, there are various places which have “allotment gardens“ whereby there are a dozen of plots each of which measure hundreds of square meters and are generally rented by the same family for a period of time (Alaimo, Beavers, Crawford, Snyder, & Litt. 2016). The overall benefits of the Community Gardens can be understood to be large in number and one of them is to reduce an impact of climate change that typically causes a global decline in overall agricultural production and, therefore, making fresh production largely ineffective. Community gardening is also an effective technique to transform the ‘built environment’ so as to promote overall health and well-being in the face of urbanization (Bai, Nath, Capon, Hasan & Jaron, 2012). The built environment has a large number of benefits and challenges for the people who live in the community (Nettle, 2016). Hence, the community gardens are generally known to improve the overall health of the user and provide them with a rich overall diet.
Additionally, they also tend to assist the individuals in combating against the plague modern urban life and bringing the different individuals closer to the different aspects of the communication and creating safer living spaces (Barron, 2017). Hence, the reason why the particular research will be conducted is to understand the overall Benefits and the challenges which exist with reference to the Community Gardening in the Canberra Region. This will assist in understanding how the region can benefit from the various aspects of the concept of Community Gardening. However, as the concept is relatively new, it would be better to understand the various challenges which the region might face by gardening and in line with this; the research will provide a considerable guideline to the Canberra region and assist them in understanding the manner in which, the community gardening will be beneficial for these individuals in the region. The current state of affairs regarding the community gardening in the Canberra region will be analyzed and discussed adequately and the perception of the different respondents with respect to the overall concept related to the community gardening has been presented and in the findings their views will be presented. The study will be undertaken from the view of a planner and the study will contribute towards understanding the role of a planner in the overall community gardening. The community gardening involves the entire community and hence, the planners can be understood to have an integral duty to organize the gardening activities and to determine the use of the best technology which can be made with respect to the same.
A community garden can be understood to be a single piece of land which is generally managed by a group of people. The community gardens are largely developed for the purpose of utilizing the individual or the shared plots on a private or a public land. All the community members generally tend to benefit from the land by producing fruit, vegetables and other plants which are generally grown for mutual benefits (Martin et al., 2017). There have been various community garden developments around the globe which have largely been a major contributor for the fulfillment of aesthetics, mental or physical wellbeing or land conservation techniques. Very often they are also owned by local governments or non-profitable associations (Passidomo, 2016).
Planning can be considered to be an essential aspect of the community gardening. According to Passidomo (2016), carrying out the Community Gardening is not easy and aspects such as the cleaning of the site, design of the garden, organizing of the work crews, planning of the work and deciding upon the plot sizes and deciding the decision based on the on the storage area for the tools and other such equipment’s needs to be analyzed adequately. According to Aronson et al. (2017), the planning has to be carried out on a regular basis and the use of the modern tools need to be made in order to understand whether the goals can be achieved successfully or not.
