Meet Naomi Lacey…
…event hosted by Hume City Council, Victoria

Come and learn about Community Gardens Australia — a peak gardening body that works with community gardens across Australia.

Naomi is a permaculturalist passionate about promoting healthy food systems, sustainable lifestyles and cultivating community. She helped establish the first community garden in the satellite city of Palmerston near Darwin and became involved with Community Gardens Australia (CGA) in 2015 then took on the role of President five years ago.

Naomi believes that community gardens have a pivotal role in ensuring better health outcomes for Australians, building community, addressing the climate crisis, reducing waste and educating people.

Awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 2019 to learn from community garden networks around the world, Naomi’s vision for CGA is to build the organisation into one that supports the growth and needs of community gardens around Australia, providing them with education, support, resources and sustenance to continue their work and therefore their positive impact on the communities they reside in.
