About Samford Commons Ltd

Samford Commons is a community volunteer run organisation striving to repurpose the old CSIRO site at Samford. Turning derelict buildings into an active community precinct where art, science, agriculture and education come together in a world class showcase for sustainable living, learning working and playing.
It will use leading-edge technology, creative educational strategies and innovative approaches to engaging communities and businesses on-site and on-line.

Samford Commons aspires to be a practical, dynamic example of sustainability principles in action. The Commons’ approach to sustainability living, learning, working and playing will include a large range of hands-on activities, experiences with virtual media, street art and theatre, low-energy-use workplaces, alternative energy exhibition, sustainable industry displays, co-working sustainability businesses, permaculture gardening, sustainable urban farming in practice and sustainability education programs.

The Commons has already hosted festivals, workshops, sold natural produce, held demonstration field days, conducted school programs, supported sustainable industry businesses and community groups, managed a connection to the broader community and hosted programs with overseas visitors.
We are looking forward to the next phase of our journey!
