Our goal

A resilient and vibrant food future for Noosa

Noosa is renowned for its world class food and dining culture that celebrates locally grown, seasonal produce. In the face of a changing climate and global economic events, the urgency for food security and resilience in regional communities is building. Today, a new breed of regenerative farmers are taking up the tools and giving rise to a new vision for our food future: to create a productive, regenerative agriculture economy in the Noosa region.

The Noosa Biosphere Reserve Foundation is launching the Grow for Noosa Fund, providing seed-funding to stimulate rural enterprise and initiatives that will help build a vibrant, productive and sustainable food and agriculture economy in the region. You can help contribute to a strong food future by supporting this year’s Noosa Biosphere Gala ‘Grow for Noosa’. Together we can help our farmers, growers and producers to grow for Noosa.
