Organic food grower Good Harvest has joined the Bloomhill supporter community, donating food plants for our new community garden.

Good Harvest is run by the Dan family at Woombye, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

Mick and Kelly, along with their daughter Alex and their team, are passionate about creating an “awesome revolution that takes care of the earth, the farmer and the consumer”, Mick said.

Mick donated “endless amounts of baby spinach plants, 40 ginger rhizomes, heaps of green leafy veggies like Bok Choy and Kale, some chive plants, tomato plants, and mint”, said Nikki Firmin.

Nikki is Bloomhill’s Associate Director of Development, and spends much of her time connecting with wonderful business owners and community members like Mick.

“People love giving to Bloomhill – it fills their soul,” Nikki said.

“I couldn’t believe it when I rang Mick out of the blue and he just got what we’re trying to do with the community garden straight away.”

Bloomhill’s community garden first started taking shape at this year’s Be There for Bloomhill Annual Giving Day on June 19.

Thanks to the generosity of local businesses including , garden beds were built and filled with soil, and have now been planted with fresh produce.

Bloomhill would also love to thank these businesses, each of which have helped bring the garden vision to fruition:

  • Express Print and Mail, who made The Chrysalis sign at the garden entrance
    JW Solutions QLD – Jeremy Wetton
  • Bruce’s Carpentry – Bruce Wetton
  • John Holland’s team of workers from the airport site
  • Airlie Earthworks – Ben Mizzi donated a digger and a day of his time to create the path areas and clean up the site
  • Kawana Hardware – Ian Witten
