The Moving Feast is the exciting new USC Sippy Downs Community Garden currently operating at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Sippy Downs.

The Moving Feast aims to establish a community supported sustainable food system at USC and embed it into campus culture. Currently membership is restricted to USC students and staff however we are currently investigating the possibility of extending our membership to the residents of Sippy Downs .

The Moving Feast is a community garden project at the University of the Sunshine Coast and a result of an interdisciplinary collaboration between Nutrition and Dietetics and Engineering. The vision is to create movable garden beds that will be utilised to grow an array of seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs and incorporate Indigenous bush tucker and International specialties.

The garden beds were constructed in the first half of 2014 and planting commenced July 2014. The gardens require considerable input from staff and student volunteers.

Here are just a few things that The Moving Feast – Creating a Sustainable USC will provide or enhance at our University:

– Student and staff engagement
– Skills building
– Sustainable food systems
– Health and wellbeing
– Connection
– Collaboration
– Diversity
– Community
– Research opportunities
– Leadership
– Volunteering

This is a community garden in the truest sense of the word – a place to connect, learn and share. Welcome to our garden – welcome to your garden.
