How did it all evolve?

At a public meeting in May 2006, a group of community members began developing the vision for a community garden in Mullumbimby. People of all ages and abilities worked together gathering ideas, pictures, dreams and expertise to create a shared goal.

We secured a lease with Byron Shire Council for our chosen 5 acre site in April, 2008 and with water being connected in the following August, the site development began.

With its broad range of programs, Mullumbimby Community Garden has now become the catalyst for more community gardens in the Byron Shire.

We have also have expanded to support emerging social enterprises and community organisations that match our values and objectives with auspicing and partnership agreements.

To reflect this expansion, the organisation’s name, constitution, objects & governance structure were changed in November 2012 to the Mullumbimby Centre for Sustainable Living and Environmental Education inc and in May 2014 it was officially shortened to Mullum S.E.E.D. inc. (Sustainability Education and Enterprise Development).

We are now registered as an Environmental Organisation with Deductible Gift Recipient and Tax Charity.
