Bass Coast Shire Council’s Edible Courtyard

A great initiative that ticks so many boxes:

  • building healthy work place relationships
  • strengthening connections with community
  • reducing carbon footprint
  • enabling people to maximise resources and minimise waste.

A collaborative project conceptualised during an internal Leadership program has seen our unloved courtyard transformed into a thriving urban farm with the help and expertise of Brendan Condon and The Sustainable Landscape Company and Biofilta.

This productive little farm is now donating food to local food charities including Phillip Island Community and Learning Centre (PICAL) who are utilising the produce to prepare meals as part of their food relief program.

This brilliant initiative will also see our staff enjoy a COVID-safe workspace where they can be creative, collaborate and re-energise whilst in a space versatile enough to meet, rest and work.

One small step in reducing our carbon footprint and connecting with our local community.
