Rainbow Region Community Farms Inc (RRCF) is a not-for-profit association, formed in 2006, and has the broad aim of promoting community gardens and related initiatives in and around Lismore in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales, Australia. At present our major activity is management and operation of the Lismore Community Garden, under a Deed of Licence with Lismore City Council.
The overall aims of RRCF are to contribute to the community of Lismore in a number of ways. By encouraging people to get involved in gardening activities, especially those involving edible produce, RRCF can help improve family nutrition through healthy eating, facilitate environmental sustainability, promote local health and fitness, provide education about a variety of gardening related topics through training projects and workshops, and help create employment and work experience opportunities.
As well as managing the community garden, RRCF is developing a program for helping people establish smaller neighbourhood gardens and working with Lismore City Council on an Edible Gardens project.
