ALREADY famed on the Coast, Buderim's unique food street has lately been attracting people from across the country and internationally as an example of self-sustainability and community harmony.
Just last Monday, a group of keen agriculturalists from Lismore made the three-and-a-half hour long drive up to Buderim to speak with and learn from co-founders Caroline Kemp and Duncan McNaught.
Ms Kemp said while the process for setting up a similar project elsewhere wouldn't be easy, it was definitely possible that the concept could take root in suburbs around the world.
"It's definitely replicable, and while our project started with just a tree and a conversation, others will need some sort of leadership to make it happen," she said.
"For us, we just wanted to demonstrate the environment had the capacity to be utilised not just to produce food but to unite communities."
Having spoken with children from Milford Lodge childcare earlier about how watering sprinklers work, Mr McNaught stressed the importance of education.
"Learning is not a document," he said.
"We've got this whole habitat of learning out here."
The urban farm, which flows across a number of streets including Stephen Street, Clithero Avenue, Tindale Avenue up towards Gloucester Road, began in 2009 and has since recorded more than 900kgs of bananas in a single year.
Ms Kemp also said this winter, the various gardens had managed to produce around 400 leafy greens, including pak choy, bok choy and kale, in a space not much larger than that between two suburban driveways.
