Local food cycling school

We are a non-profit organization to promote the enjoyment of a lifestyle that aims to establish resource recycling in the local community. Our activities include, among others teaching how to recycle our kitchen garbage and other waste generated from our yards that is, how to turn them into compost and communicating the joy of composting. By making use of compost we produced or collected in neiboring areas, we grow vegetables in community gardens. 

We focus on following 5 issues for a sustainable lifestyle in community you live.

Farm Shop Educational Centre

Hello! As a farming family we have always had a passion to supply the public with healthy, local fruit and vegetables as well as educate people on healthy eating. Having struggled to encourage local councils we work with to support us in our drive to educate children and their parents we have decided to create a program ourselves. Through our expansion of our business with a Farm Shop and Restaurant we want to create an educational space for children to learn about farming, healthy eating and cooking.

Springhill Garden

Our program is really in the beginning stages at I am looking to expand and build the program by implementing structure and systems that will create a sustainable means for the garden to continue through the changing personnel that a public school can bring.

My eldest is now in kindergarten at the local school and the garden program is in desperate need of help, I want to be that help.
