Mosman Community Gardeners welcomes new members. You can visit us any time our gardens are open, we will show you the garden and you can join in.
You can join MCG in two ways, with an individual membership or a family membership.
The annual fee for an individual membership is $50 pa (plus $1 joining fee) and $75 pa for families (plus $2 joining fee). Each adult member of the family completes a membership form. If you join mid financial year, ie after 31 December, the cost to join is $30 (plus $1 joining fee) for individuals and $50 (plus $2 joining fee) for families.
Gardening membership fees go towards the costs of insurance, building beds, planting, maintenance and advocacy. Gardening members share in the planting, care and harvesting of beds. Gardening is conducted as a social activity and harvesting is shared by those people present at the time.

Mosman Community Gardeners was established to advocate for community gardens in Mosman.
We have built a community garden at Mackie Lane with the support of Mosman Council and Ausgrid. MCG has public liability insurance and volunteers insurance for this site. We also garden at Middle Head where a NPWS volunteer community garden is operated by MCG. Members gardening at Middle Head enrol as volunteers for NPWS. Doing so covers individuals with volunteers insurance. MCG members at Middle Head provide occasional help to the NPWS, usually in the form of catering for NPWS on-site functions.
MCG has some common sense guidelines for safety and conduct in the gardens, which are outlined here. We ask you to take a few minutes to read these.
