Coffs Coast Community Farm - Innovation Fund 2012 -2014

This ambitious project offered purpose and place for people experiencing social exclusion, mental health challenges, long-term unemployment and embedded disadvantage. We at RISIR were asked to evaluate and research – applying innovative, qualitative, transdisciplinary research methodologies.

 

The therapeutic horticultural benefits were clear along with the sense of place, belonging and purpose the farm offered.
