Noosa’s Community Garden Project

Japara Noosa and the Noosa Flexi Learning Centre have been working together on a community garden project at the home. Students took the lead in designing and painting a beautiful wall mural and building garden beds. Residents have also been keen to be involved in every step of the way and joined students to help paint the mural and garden beds, and then plant herbs and flowers in the garden beds.

Noosa’s Home Manager Heather said that the partnership was fantastic for both the home and the students. “These intergenerational activities have proven to be very rewarding for all involved and we look forward to continued association with the school in developing community networks,” she said.

Noosa Flexi Learning Centre also manages the home’s café. The project is an opportunity for students to gain work experience and build confidence, and Generations Café is much loved and frequented often by Japara residents, staff, families and neighbours. You can read more about Generations Café here.
