Dear Community.👩‍🌾
As a result of the current situation with covid-19 we are halting all Work For Dole programmes. With the advise of NSW Revenue we are halting Work Direction Order work due to potential liability. The monthly reporting will continue for WDO and will not result in any license or registration suspension.
We are welcoming volunteers who would like to contribute to keeping the Garden running and will place instructions on the black board of work that is required.
We must stress that this is done with the acknowledgement that this is undertaken at ones own personal risk and ask that physical distancing and hygiene methods are adhered to. We will be providing soap and hand sanitiser at locations throughout the Garden
We are working to provide food for the community over the coming weeks and months🌱 and also request please🙏 that food is not stolen. If you witness anyone doing this you are welcome to take photographs and send them to us.
We hope you are all healthy and well.
With love from the Mullum Community Garden Team 😍

Rain tree planting for Martin Kantor

Despite fires and drought, Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare is calling locals to plant a tree as a gesture to call the rain back to our land and honour local rainforest conservationist and philanthropist Martin Kantor.

The event will be held at Saltwater Creek adjacent to the Mullumbimby Community Gardens on Saturday the 18th of January, from 9 am until the last of 500 local rain forest trees are in the ground. To find us, walk through the MCG gate and follow the main path. We will be on the left, just past the MCG main office building waiting to register you before you get dirty. Relax, all tree planting holes will be pre-dug.

Martin Kantor passionately believed in the power of community, and the importance of protecting our rainforests. His generous support helped establish the Mullumbimby Community Gardens and also ensured many ongoing conservation wins for Rainforest Rescue. A generous and caring individual, Martin passed away in August 2015. This rainforest food garden adjacent to the Community Gardens honours what Martin believed in, and is a living tribute to his memory.

Local female percussion group, Batala, will welcome all tree planters and drum for the rain with samba reggae.

Please wear blue coloured clothing for the rain (long sleeved shirt for sun protection, and long pants), a hat, gloves and bring water, sunblock and some morning tea. Trees, tools and first aid kit will be provided. Although the trees will be planted with water crystals, we still need to give each tree a bucket of water. Because water restriction 4 is now in place, we can’t use the hoses, so we are asking you to bring a bucket or many of water that you have saved from you shower water.

The event will be coordinated by Nadia de Souza Pietramale, from BSCFL. It has been made possible with funds and fellowship from local organisations and individuals: Byron Shire Council Community Initiatives Program, Angela and David Bambach, Forest Now, Rain Forest Rescue and Mullumbimby Community Gardens.
