Permaculture teacher training

Participating in the permaculture teacher training organised by Rowe Morrow in Lithgow. I hope to come back to coffs with lots of ideas and inspiration. My group is developing a pitch for a permaculture design course curriculum for refugees. That might be useful in our neck of the woods.

OUR AIMS AND VALUES

Coffs Regional Community Gardens aim to:

■ Establish and maintain sustainable community gardens throughout our region
■ Develop community knowledge and practical skills around local food
■ Raise awareness of the benefits of home gardening, organic food and self-sufficiency
■ Foster opportunities for community engagement and cultural exchange
■ Develop strong partnerships with other community organisations
■ Showcase sustainable living solutions

Our Partners

We would not have such a wonderful community garden growing in Coffs Harbour today without the help of all the lovely people who have been involved in the project since it started in 2009. We would like to thank all funding bodies, sponsors and contributors that have donated funds, materials or time to the garden (and continue to do so on regular basis). Their inspiring contributions, continued partnership and support are making a difference everyday for our garden and our community. If you too are a business or an organisation and would like to become a sponsor or a partner of the Coffs Regional Community Gardens association, please feel free to get in touch.
