Samford Eco-Corridor is a community-based project working to re-establish local plant species in the Samford Parklands and to create a beautiful natural area for the benefit of people as well as wildlife. Bushcare activities are held regularly to maintain the extensive habitat. Volunteers always welcome.
Edible Garden Trail
Samford Edible Garden Trail is a community initiative that started in early 2020. Created by a handful of volunteers who are local to Samford and surrounds, the Trail is not only an annual open day event, but also takes us on a fortnightly journey in The Village Pump through some of the community’s most amazing edible gardens. Each of the volunteers share a love of eating food they have grown themselves and they have a passion for sharing this knowledge with others.
