We are focusing on 5 Core Areas as we plan our next steps
Exploring sustainable agriculture, community skill building and vocational training.
Celebrating, learning and creating a resilient community together.
Developing a whole site plan to work with nature.
Food Sharing & Healthy Eating
Nourishing meals made with our shared knowledge and skills.
Our purpose is to foster community connection to and care for the environment and each other by establishing a community gathering and learning place at Downs Estate, Seaford.
Our activities include building community resilience and wellbeing, connection to local history and culture, demonstrating and teaching sustainable food production to increase local food security and actively enhancing the natural environment.
At all times we respect:
the Traditional Owners of Down’s Estate, the Boon Wurrung and Bunurong, their elders, past and present and their ongoing connection to the land
the natural environment surrounding and within Downs Estate
the challenge of rapid climate change, balancing human needs with those of the land and its flora and fauna
