General Wellbeing

​​​​Looking to improve your general wellbeing and lifestyle but not sure where to start? The Maranoa region is filled with beautiful outdoor spaces and Be Healthy & Safe Maranoa is involved in a range of activities and programs that promote wellness.  Being healthy isn’t all about diet and exercise, we also need to think about and look after our social, emotional and mental health.​​

Community Gardens

Community gardens aim to engage and inspire people to grow, eat and share fresh produce. They are a place for interested people who don’t have access to their own garden space or who want to share their passion for gardening with others.  Community gardens provide a place for people to connect and be part of their community.

There are established community gardens in Injune, Jackson, Roma and Yuleba. Be Healthy and Safe Maranoa plays an advisory and support role for these gardens and encourages locals to get involved.
