As tree planting is for the environment, garden planting is for human earthlings, and local group GROW will host a planting event this Saturday.

The GROW community garden event is on this Saturday.

GROW is an interactive hub inviting the community to gather to grow together as a loving and healthy community. ‘Growing healthy bodies, healthy connections and healthy gardens.’

GROW events are like community markets. In addition to stalls there will are interactive experiences through live demos, workshops, classes and talks

This weekend’s gathering will be based on the Permaculture principles of: land care, people care, fair share. It will be mostly gardening and wellness focussed.

This free event includes planting veggies in the community garden for the whole community, a garden tour, stalls of local businesses, an organic bush regen session and a ‘Garden to Table’ community lunch from 12.30 at $10 per plate.

The vision of the GROW events is to inspire communities to connect with inspiring ways to improve their health and wellbeing while connecting in with nature and the land.

All are welcome!

This event is on Saturday April 4 from 10am until 3pm at the Mullumbimby Community Gardens, 152 Stuart St, Mullumbimby.

Please note this is a ‘smoke / toxin / alcohol’ free event and the gardens do not allow pets on the grounds.
