Mullumbimby Community Garden (MCG) is a facility open to all that flourishes on 5 acres of lush Bundjalung country in Northern NSW.
We are a not for profit community organisation run by volunteers We acknowledge the past and present custodians of this rich and fertile land.
The Mullumbimby Community Garden garden is a place of vibrancy, abundance, cultural diversity, friendships, knowledge, sustainable practices and fun.
Together, we have been growing organic fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers since August 2008 on our 5 acre site just a 500m walk from Mullumbimby CBD. We offer a diverse range programs, projects, workshops and activities available for all ages, abilities and interests.
” Community gardens are an ever- growing phenomena in Australia and the world, unique places where people come together to grow fresh food, to learn, relax and make new friends… and no two community gardens are alike – each one is as individual as the communities and the landscapes that create them”.
Mullumbimby Community Garden welcomes you to visit our award winning facility open to the public during daylight hours 7 days a week. You can join in – plant a seedling, water, pull a weed or just have a wander and take in the ambience of this gentle and calming space.
Mullum SEED has created a crowdfunding campaign on Chuffed
for the stolen MCG tools and equipment that went missing over the xmas break…
A little bit of context
Mullumbimby Community Garden has just celebrated 10 years supporting the local community with fresh organic produce, events, workshops and general outdoor enjoyment for all ages. Our slogan is “Growing to Share and Sharing to Grow”.
MCG is 100% volunteer operated and our only funding comes from membership fees, small donations and the occasional hard won grant.
Unlike many community gardens, the MCG is open to the public 7 days a week during daylight hours.
What has happened?
Since our launch in 2008 we have been fortunate to have experienced very few notable incidents of loss, however on the first weekend in January, while our volunteer caretakers were on their Christmas break, a significant theft of garden maintenace equipment took place.
This included two generators, a drop saw, angle grinder, gardening tools, all our hoses and more.
The cost of insurance has always been considered by the Management Committee to be exhorbant considering the calulated risk and that’s why we need your help.
Funds raised through this campaign will replace the stolen assets and invest in making changes that will reduce the risk of this happening again in the future. All possibile stategies including insurance, cameras, better locking mechanisms are currently being investigated.
