Mullumbimby Community Garden (MCG) exists because of the amazing achievements of lots of people sharing their time, their passions, skills and knowledge.
MCG is run by volunteers, some who stay for a long time and others, just awhile, but together, we have created an award winning facility that fulfils so many needs in our community. Without our volunteers, the MCG just could not survive.
There are a diverse range of activities to engage in. You can come to share your existing skills or learn new ones – upskilling to improve work options or just to share commons interests with people from a wide range of backgrounds..
Our “Pods” include:
• Childrens Garden;
• Education and Events;
• Elders Garden;
• Food for All communal gardens;
• Harvest Community Kitchen;
• Kitchen Gardens;
• Nursery (seed saving and seedling propogation)
• Site Maintenance and building;
• Waste Management.(compost, worms, recycling etc).
We also share our grounds with:
• Future Feeders (a young farmers hub, peer support and community farming program),
• Mullum Cares Library of Stuff;
• Mullum Food Co-op;
• Mullumbimbees Natural Beekeeping Group;
• Mullum Mens Shed.
So there are lots of choices of programs and projects that you can participate in or just come along and a Daily Supervisor will point you in the direction of activities of the day.
You will be asked to fill out a Volunteer Registration form and a Work Health and Safety checklist. This will help you understand your rights and responsibilities, give your insurance coverage and also assist us in keeping you up to date with what is happening at the garden.
By volunteering at MCG you will learn, share, laugh, dig, and make lots of new friends. You will know too, that you are contributing to the cultural and social tapestry of our wonderful town and in the words of Ghandi “being the change you want to see in the world”.
