Grow N Munch
Funded by Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation 2019 – 2021


The Grow N Munch project was to set up sustainable raised garden beds and upgrade of MiiMi’s existing kitchen to supply fresh produce and ingredients for a soup kitchen to supply to disadvantaged community members.

Unfortunately, the soup kitchen cannot be delivered because of NSW Health’s COVID19 restrictions.

Land & Sea Rangers – funding by the NSW Department of Primary Industries


This project will provide the opportunity to extend onto the business recycling initiative through the engagement of Land & Sea Rangers to deliver the environment's monitoring with Plastic Collective.
The Land & Sea Rangers will receive training and ongoing support to monitor all types of litter from sites along the river continuum including townships, riverbanks, mangrove habitats and the ocean beaches.
The Rangers will also receive training in plastic recycling and the general principles of a circular economy for plastics (cradle-to-cradle).
Land & Sea Rangers will deliver the environmental monitoring in the Nambucca over 4 sampling periods (3 monthly – September, December, March and April)

Wajaar Durrunda
Funded by Resilience NSW

This project will bring Gumbaynggirr custodians, young and old, together to create space where Elders can share cultural values and pass traditional knowledge and skills to younger custodians.
This has a huge social value for Aboriginal people in Bowraville but also will facilitate coming together with other individuals and community groups in the Nambucca Valley.
Socially, students and youth will learn about native forest and riverbank regeneration as well as native plants and what ecosystems regeneration looks like; this will foster creative minds and employment opportunities for young people in Bowraville, improving self-worth and identity.
