At Heritage Bank, we’re committed to making a difference in the communities we operate. That’s why we’ve partnered with The Mulberry Project to provide a helping hand to the migrant and refugee community.
The Mulberry Project is an innovative social enterprise which turns underused land into market gardens and create pathways to careers in farming and food for our migrant and refugee communities.
As a major sponsor of this wonderful program, we are providing a helping hand to The Mulberry Project to continue to transform lives and land from scarcity to abundance. Our sponsorship will enable the Mulberry Project to appoint a part-time volunteer coordinator who will liaise with three target groups – refugees/migrants, Indigenous youngsters, and schoolchildren – to participate in the program.
Our support will also be felt with The Mulberry Projects signature fund-raising event, ‘The Heritage Bank Mulberry Project Long Lunch’ in 2022. Taking place in September at the Toowoomba Showgrounds, the long lunch will bring together a wide range of people to enjoy meals prepared using produce grown at the Mulberry Project’s garden plots.
