Developing “sustainable communities” is widely recognised as an essential process in which we all share a collective responsibility. To ensure that Community Solutions plays a constructive role in developing sustainable communities, we have developed a strategy whereby our Community Capital Centres will be utilising solar power, collecting rain water and recycling.
An extension of this strategy on the Sunshine Coast is the development of the Eastbank Edible Garden, adjacent to the Sunshine Coast Community Capital Centre at Lake Kawana. The garden has been developed as a training facility for the public and Community Solutions programs. These programs include employment, training, disability care, health and wellbeing, youth, indigenous, social enterprise and seniors. Additional benefits are evident in the social connections made and environmental appreciation, which are developed through involvement in the Eastbank Edible Garden project.
