Students, staff, Traditional Owners, community members and garden gurus all gathered on the Cairns campus recently to officially launch the new Community Garden. 

The garden also has a name chosen by the Traditional Owners. It’s Mayi Tjulbin Ma Bugarra, which means which means: food and fruits, vegetables, trees and berries from the rainforest.

Cairns garden guru Kim Morris did the honours, Community Garden Coordinator Jay Jackson gave a talk on permaculture, Lisa Law and the Community of Gardeners told the history of the garden, and everyone got their hands dirty.
