FAN Members Dave Jarret from Sustainable Soil Solutions and Sarah Wright from Homegrown Café have partnered for the formation of a nursery and coffee shop collaboration in Palmwoods.

Originally operating from Dave’s farm, The Garden Shed Nursery relocated in January to its new home opposite Homegrown Café, and the two businesses now operate within a shared garden known to locals as “The Lane”.

If you are after a freshly prepared seasonal meal with produce from local farmers, and in house roasted coffee this is the place to go. After you finish your meal, wander across the lane and pick up your organically grown vegetable seedlings & herbs, subtropical fruit trees, plant health products and get advice from experts on soil testing and amendment products.

The shared space also offers meeting facilities for groups, a large outdoor entertaining area for catered parties, long lunches, and Sunday sessions with flowing craft beer and live music.

Fostering a sense of community and championing the story of provenance, a major focus for Sarah and Dave was to promote and collaborate with as many FAN members as possible, including;

  • Walters Bakery
  • Maleny Dairies
  • Kenilworth Cheese
  • Sunshine Brewery
  • Good Harvest Organic Farm
  • Nutri-Tech Solutions
  • Maleny Cheese
  • Frozen Sunshine
  • The Greenshed

 “For Sarah and I it’s all about local. FAN is a great vehicle to drive and enhance the relationships between businesses, which will in turn strengthen our community and economy”, says Dave.

The Grand Opening for The Garden Shed Nursery is this Saturday 24th February.

Dave and Sarah hope to see you there for a coffee and meal, fruit trees, seedlings and advise for your garden, (or all of the above!)

“The Lane” is located, 4-6 Little Main Street, Palmwoods.

They also welcome any other members to get in contact if they are interested in supplying product for Homegrown Café or The Garden Shed Nursery.
