SUMMER BREAK

The crew are taking a well-earned break from close of business Friday 20th of December 2019 and returning Monday 6th of January 2020

NDIS

Unfortunately the NDIS has become too onerous for us to continue as a registered NDIS Service Provider. We are still prepared do work for NDIS clients but will only deal them directly. They will need to claim the costs for NDIS themselves. Our usual initial consultation fee will continue to be waived for NDIS clients.

OUR SCHEDULE IS CURRENTLY FULL

Our schedule is currently full and as much as we would love to take on new customers the only options, we can offer at this point in time are to refer you to the other gardeners section on our network page and/or put you on our waiting list

 
 

At The Sustainable Gardener we can create an edible garden and support you in growing delicious and nutritious food at your home.

NDIS SUPPORT

Although The Sustainable Gardener is no longer a registered service provider, we are still prepared to work directly with those receiving NDIS support.

As a social enterprise we not only employ people living with disability, some of whom receive NDIS support, but are now increasingly providing household garden maintenance services to others as part of their individual NDIS support plans.

 

Our intrepid workers now have the opportunity to assist others living with a disability who need help with their gardens.

The financial arrangement is with the customer directly. They receive the invoice from us and pay us within 7 days of the work being undertaken.  The customers submit a claim themselves to recover the costs from the NDIS under their plan

We offer concessions for NDIS clients in the form of waiving the initial consult fee of $120 including GST.

If you are receiving NDIS support or you know someone on NDIS that may need help with their garden, why not get in touch. We would be pleased to assist you.

 
 

A nice gesture from

In the past, he has also worked as a disability support worker and he has taken crews of people with disabilities out to do garden maintenance jobs in and around Canberra.
 
Thanks to the support of our valued customers we have grown to the extent of being able to employ employ 9 of whom 6 live with a disability.
We currently have two fully equipped vans with trailers that enable us to perform all the tasks required in caring for your gardens.
Our workers receive comprehensive on the job training as well as attending specialized courses in first aid, chainsaw and chemical use. They are also encouraged and supported in attaining  CIT Horticulture qualifications and attending less formal courses such as the growing of nutrient dense food run by Phion.
