Gardener Paula Brown told The Echo the stall was made possible by a grant from the Northern Rivers Community Foundation. ‘Many community gardens members were impacted by the February 2022 floods, and this was the first working bee held since the floods. 

‘There’s plenty of limes, turmeric, rosemary, green pawpaw and ginger available’.

Anyone can take what they like from the stall and leave a small donation if they can. Sharing excess produce from your own home garden is welcome too.
