Wonderful news folks, we are soon to kick off our first big local project and I welcome all of you to take part. We will be aiming to plant 100 - 300 front of home vegetable patches around the Tweed Valley. The goal is for each involved member to contribute 3 hours a week to maintaining 10 gardens each after setting the soil, weeding, planting. Experience not necessary - full training is provided. Produce will be divided between us, the owner of the land, stalls that operate via donation, and homeless shelters/families/people in need.

Upon successful implementation this will also serve as a model which can be used in every township in Australia and will have a tremendous impact on Australian citizens relationships with their own food. It begins here in the Tweed Valley.

Please message me with an expression of interest, general experience, and time that you have free so that we can begin compiling a schedule to work from. Work will begin after we have an appropriate number of houses interested, equipment, and seedlings ready to plant in approximately 3 months time.

If you have some members in your region maybe you can set up a similar project locally Roi-Sun? Food is absolutely key if we want to create room to move away from the financial system

I think it's a great idea Ryan. Not sure if I will be free to help much as I am a bit too far away.....and my own vege garden really needs my time. Best of luck with it though.
