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.
