Food and Farm


The Food Next Door program in a progressive social and community initiative that matches unused farmland with newly arrived refugee and migrant farmers who have a background in agriculture; to support small scale, regenerative farming practices. With a focus on prioritising both social and economic impact, this exciting program was founded by Deborah Bogenhuber and offers a model that can build local food systems around communities. Food produced by the program is distributed amongst the farming communities, as well as through Out of the Box Sunraysia, a weekly produce subscription service.There is an abundance of opportunity to scale the program into the future, as this model tests the water and forges new boundaries for local and community agricultural production.
