To protect and nuture a much loved asset, so that it can thrive and evolve and continue to provide the people of Eurobodalla and the visitors to our region with beautiful Gardens to enjoy for many years to come.

We will set ourselves the highest possible environmental standards — minimising resource use; using as much recycled water as possible; reducing our energy use; reducing, reusing and recycling our waste — and provide active leadership to the Eurobodalla through demonstrating, doing and teaching.

Building community connections, increasing involvement and participation and hosting a diverse range of activities and events that cater for all sectors of the community are some of the ways through which we will increase our impact.
