Mullum S.E.E.D. Inc. | Grow to Share, Share to Grow
Mullumbimby Sustainability Education & Enterprise Development
We are a not-for-profit volunteer based charity which aims to build a respectful, supportive and resilient community with interactive activities based around sustainability and environmental awareness.
Our projects include the Mullumbimby and Shara Community Gardens where we grow organic produce in our ‘Food for All’ gardens to share with people in need. These is just one of the many positive ways we support our community.
We also promote and practice ecologically sustainable development and education programs that enhance and protect the natural environment.
Through our Bunya Sustainabilty Fund we support other community initiatives including chemical free bush regeneration, dune care, renewable energy, alternative building techniques, soil health and carbon farming, waste minimisation and youth empowerment.
