A $600,000 federal grant for the community facilities at the Mullumbimby Sustainability Education and Enterprise Development Inc (Mullum SEED Eco Hub) will see new facilities, including a Men’s Shed, environmental centre, performance stage and a commercial kitchen.

Local Labor MP, Justine Elliot, made the announcement last week and says the federal funding will be delivered under Round 1 of the Growing Regions Program.

‘I’m proud,  as your strong voice in the Albanese Labor government to be delivering this important funding for Mullum SEED Eco Hub.

‘This funding from the Albanese Labor government will allow Mullum SEED to grow and expand the important, wonderful work they do for the environment and the community.

‘Mullum SEED supports not-for-profit organisations and projects that protect and enhance our natural environment.

‘What grew out of Mullumbimby Community Garden later became Mullum SEED, and from the very beginning I’ve been a big supporter of the work they do for the environment and the community’, said Mrs Elliot.
