The Jimboomba Community Garden has been one of seven organisations to receive a green thumbs up at the 2016 Logan Urban Design Awards (LUDA).
The nature sanctuary has taken home the 2016 Landscape Architecture and Urban Infrastructure Award, and president Georgie Francis said she was “stoked”.
The co-founder discovered the garden, with the help of Raelee Vearing, four years ago.
“We wanted to create a space where people could come to learn, about healthy eating, and unwind,” Ms Francis said.
“The garden’s a place where you can come down, it’s free, and meet with other people and grow plants.
“It’s very peaceful and has really blossomed over the years.”
My Home and The River Estate, based in Logan Village, was also presented with the 2016 Master Planning Award.
LUDA – held every second year – showcases excellence in the design and creation of urban environments throughout the city of Logan.
“These are great examples of where I thought spaces draw in and generate positive social outcomes,” Planning and Development Chairman, Councillor Russell Lutton, said.
“Great design is more than just eye-catching angles and dramatic features.
“It should be able to draw inspiration from the natural environment around it and create spaces that are not only fresh and exciting, but that also grow to become much loved community areas.”
