Welcome – ‘Jingi Wala’Welcome

Mullumbimby Community Garden (MCG) is a not for profit, community based project of Mullum S.E.E.D. (Mullumbimby Sustainability Education and Enterprise Development incorporated)

Mullumbimby Community Garden lies on 5 hectares of lush Bundjalung country in Northern NSW. We acknowledge and respect the past and present custodians of this rich and fertile land.

The garden is a place of vibrancy, abundance, cultural diversity, friendships, knowledge, sustainable practices and fun. We have been growing since April 2009 and we now have a diverse range programs, projects, workshops and activities available for all ages, abilities and interests.

Community Garden Of The Year 2014!!

It’s official, we have been chosen as Community Garden of the Year by ABC Gardening Australia! Together we have grown a magnificent, award-winning community garden. A big thank you to you for participating in our community garden.

The Mullumbimby Community Garden inspires and motivates many to grow their own and enjoy the fruits of such labour. This award is a wonderful acknowledgement for all the sweat and love that has gone into creating such a community asset. Let’s look forward to growing more veggies and sharing the abundance.

JeanetteCould we ever say thank you enough to the woman who gave it her all and more? Who not only initiated the agreements with Council, but then continued to make sure the dream became a reality….   Jeanette, you have mentored and inspired, taught and counseled many. Now we have this amazing resource where we can grow, gather, eat, learn, share, teach, evolve, enjoy and lead by example, thanks to you.
