The Permaculture Noosa Committee has been approached by Nick Hodge, President of Cooroy Community Garden and Kylie Finigan, Community Development Officer with Noosa Council. They are looking for partners in the community, or community groups who would be willing to take on a management role of the gardens. The Cooroy Community Garden group have worked very hard over the last few years to add important expensive infrastructure.
Nick and Kylie have had previous conversations with Maria and other members of our organisation on the idea of partnership with Cooroy Community Garden, prompting them to give us this opportunity, for which we are very grateful.
The group are open to any ideas for revitalisation of the gardens – including it becoming a true permaculture garden.
It would be great if we could make it our permanent home. It’s also possible we could also come to some sharing arrangement with the Cooroy Badminton club next door.
The Permaculture Noosa Committee has yet to hold formal discussions on this proposition, but as individuals we are very excited by it and would welcome comments from our members. If you have anything to say on this (or any matter), please don’t hesitate to post a comment on the website.
