Fallow farmland is being sought for locally grown produce to also be sold in Bellingen.

BELLINGEN business Kombu Wholefoods and North Bank Community Garden are on the hunt for some local land that can be used to grow sustainable produce for sale in the township.

“We have been working hard to source as much locally produced, sustainably grown food as possible. However, despite the hard work of our amazing local growers, we still find ourselves buying in significant produce each week from the city markets,” said Kevin Doye from Kombu.

The aim of the project is to bring five to 10 hectares of local land currently not being farmed back into production.

Kombu would offer a guaranteed market for the produce and the farm would be used to train local people in the art of sustainable, commercial growing.

If anyone is interested in being part of the project, has land available that could be utilised for the project, and would like more information please contact Kevin Doye at Kombu on 6655 9299 or at shop@kombu.com.au.
