In 2012, Slow Food Noosa, along with United Synergies, founded the community gardens as an outreach program for local youth who would come together to take care of their school garden. As the gardening initiative made headway, the popularity of having a ‘community garden’ meant that it was taking on a new life. Soon there after the gardens expanded into something for the whole community. In March of 2018, Noosa Community Gardens became incorporated and thus it was no longer under the auspices of organisations that originally brought it to fruition. Plans for expansion of the community gardens are in the works, and we hope that as our garden continues to grow, so do we.
