greening the heart
Lismore's idyllic climate and rich volcanic soil produce some of the finest fresh produce you'll ever taste. For foodies of the region...its no surprise that the Northern Rivers is known as one of the most exciting food bowls in Australia...but, its not every day that you'll get to see and experience fresh, organic, local produce, flowers, herbs and natives growing in the streets of a CBD...
Greening the Heart is a project that brings community gardens into the streets of Lismore's CBD. Community gardens are places where people come together to grow plants, ideas, and relationships on common ground. Greening the Heart brings to light the abundant possibilities of small-scale organic food production, flowers and herbs, as well as the beauty of our unique, native flora.
It's a collaborative project with local nurseries and businesses donating seedlings and materials. Local schools, clubs and organisations then come together to plant gardens in recycled containers with veggies, flowers, herbs and natives and all adopted and cared for by CBD businesses.
LightnUp would like to sincerely thank the sponsors, decorators, growers and the businesses that participated in 2012. We do hope you will join us again this year.
