Event Description

Yandina Community Gardens is hosting a Pizza afternoon on Sunday 7th May at 12 midday in the gardens around our frog cob pizza oven.  This is social gathering for our Members and regular Volunteers and a celebration of International Permaculture Day. This event is only for YCG Members and regular Volunteers. Membership can be paid on the day — click here to find out more. Please RSVP by Thursday 4 May for catering purposes – details below. We ask for a contribution of $5 per pizza. We use wraps as pizza bases (gluten free available). If you would like to bring your own base, please feel free to do so. Tea, coffee & water will be available, but BYO other drinks. If you feel inspired we invite you to bring a plate of nibbles, home grown produce or a dessert to share.

Activities on the day will include:

As well as Caring for People with nutritious food and company, we will also be:
1. Caring for Earth by discussing ideas on how to avoid/reduce using plastic – so bring along your ideas and examples to share [Inspired by our new Giving Plastic the Flick Facebook Group]
2. Sharing the Surplus – We will be collecting items you no longer want/need to be passed to a local group, Campsite Rescue, a small group of volunteers whose goal is to relieve the hardship people experience when living in campsites (including Yandina and Nambour Caravan Parks) on the Sunshine Coast. Please bring items to donate. They are totally self funded and rely on donations from the community. They collect and distribute free of charge the following goods:
  • Kitchenware including dishes, cutlery, pots, pans, sandwich makers, heaters, fry pans, mixers blenders magic bullets, slow cookers.
  • Manchester including sheets, towels, doona’s etc
  • Clothing – all clothing items
  • Food – especially fresh fruit and veggies, also including: eggs, cereals; soups spreads; condiments, canned food, cordial, cheap water, biscuits (no pasta/rice)

Hope you can come along and enjoy an afternoon of yummy cob oven pizza and inspiring Permaculture company!

About Organiser

Established in 2002, Yandina Community Gardens Inc. (YCG) is a Volunteer-run community group dedicated to teaching people to grow their own organic food and live more sustainably through Permaculture.  

Our gardens and club house demonstrate Permaculture, organic food production and sustainable living, and visitors can learn through observation and regular structured activities (e.g., guided garden tours, workshops, hands-on learning through volunteering). We embrace a collective community garden model rather than an individual plot model – we sow together, grow together & harvest together.

Our Volunteers value YCG as an avenue of support, connection and belonging. We inspire and teach people to grow their own nutritious food, be healthy, active, and connected, and live sustainably.

We focus on simple, affordable ways to grow healthy, nutritious, organic food without expensive equipment or fertilisers, with the aim of improving health and reducing the cost of living. Efficient housing, energy and resource use is also demonstrated and taught.

We encourage community members to make healthy food choices (e.g., a variety of fresh produce) and hold workshops on how to prepare produce. We are dedicated to the Permaculture Principles of Care of Earth, Care of People and Sharing Surplus. We are open 3 days per week, including Saturday mornings.

YCG is a place of beauty, creativity, inspiration, learning, fun, and connection. As well as volunteering, people are invited to become financial Members of our organisation.

Social gatherings are organised for Members and Volunteers throughout the year.
