Samford Commons is LIVE! Samford Commons Ltd has now successfully reached a community lease agreement with the Moreton Bay Regional Council. This means part of the former Samford CSIRO site is once again set for a new beginning as a place to grow…nurture…collaborate.
This time around, the community is in the driver’s seat. Members of the community can choose whether they want to partnership with Samford Commons in growing a sustainable local economy. The historic launch event Samford Commons LIVE! on the 24th May explains it all.
How wonderful that the Moreton Bay Regional Council continues to recognise and support the initiative and long term vision of Samford Commons over the past years. As part of this community lease, more than 8,000 m2 of Samford Parklands, through Millen Farm, is to be transformed into an urban farm, complete with food storage facilities, with sustainability as the focus. Millen Farm is just one part of the larger Samford Commons vision. Creative Samford have already mapped out an extensive Arts Trail
Samford Commons is a not-for-profit entity and is registered as a charity. As such, Samford Commons is now added to the list of more than 220 community organisations and groups (2013-2015 figures) the Council extends community leases to.
The signing of the community lease now paves the way for the site launch event Samford Commons LIVE! to be held on the 24th May. Come and experience the Samford Commons vision. Bring your families. Bring your friends. Bring your ideas. Be prepared for a FUN day!
