While we were officially founded in 2021 the seeds for a community garden in our coastal villages were planted in 2018. However, with the unprecedented 2019/2020 black summer bushfires, the COVID pandemic and some intense local activism to save a local forest, the concept of a community garden was paused.
Analysis of a community survey conducted by Manyana Matters Environmental Association in November 2020 indicated that community gardening was the number one activity our community would like to pursue to support and facilitate healing from the trauma of the 2019/20 bushfires. This motivated our passionate founders to form a small committee in early 2021 which led to the launch of the Five Villages Community Garden.
