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.
