Village Visions

Utopian Dreams :  Visioning workshop at Veggie Village

Sunday 16th September 9 am - 12 pm 

All members/non members welcome and tell others in your circles!!


Veggie Village is growing and they invite and welcome all interested people to join us in envisioning the future of the Peregian Veggie Village. 


Local architect Robyn Hewitt, landscape architect Libby Winter and Community / Premaculture garden designer Bruce Molloy have volunteered to facilitate the brainstorming session.

'Our successful community garden has been granted an extension of land to the west which presents a wonderful opportunity for us to grow in membership, food production and in community. While the proposed extension will reduce the size of Di Hurst Oval slightly, we look for ways to give back more than we take.  It starts with our thoughts, our ideas our dreams.  So before we rush head in and dig (which we do well) we want to look up and around to dream of what we want to become.  What is our utopian dream?'


Aims of the workshop

to generate ideas, dreams and visions for the future of the garden

to rethink how and why we do things,

to listen to and engage with the wider community

to identify and prioritise immediate tasks

to invite people to be part of a design group to carry the process further

If you can't make this workshop but want to put forward your ideas then the short member online survey "Views from the Village" is still open!   Go to  


Veggie Village is tucked in next to the natural spring on Di Hurst Oval that runs adjacent to the Bowls Club, Tennis Courts and Community Kindy in the heart of the open space recreation precinct of Peregian Beach.

    Peregian and the Veggie Village are like 'The Good Life'. Margot & Jerry Leadbetter are like the Council - One day you will co-exist happily. Keep fighting the 'Good' fight

    Why visitors still use to read news papers when in this technological world everything is available on net?
