Community Lunch every Tuesday, 1pm
The Mullumbimby Community Garden garden is a place of vibrancy, abundance, cultural diversity, friendships, knowledge, sustainable practices and fun.
On Tuesdays we have a communal lunch at 1pm for volunteers, members and general public. We would love you to join us and for a small donation or an hour’s work you can enjoy the fruits of our labour with us.
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.
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.
