Stellar Violets’ vision
Create an inter-generational, collaborative place of beauty & lifelong learning, offering wondrous experiences to help people & planet flourish.
Our mission is guided by this question: “How, in this time, shall we live?”
Stellar Violets guides creative journeys. We share knowledge, skills & wisdom on 8 acres in Manjimup, among garden and train carriages come to rest.
We’re building a place where people can “journey together” into living in reciprocity with nature.
Join us for a seasonal event while we grow. Coming soon: library, therapeutic gardens, overnight stays in converted rail carriages, and published offerings.

Founded in 2012 by Lucinda Giblett in Manjimup, Western Australia, Stellar Violets exists to enrich life. Functioning as a collaborative place of beauty and learning, volunteer-led projects map responses to pervasive ill health in self, land and society – the global “whole health” crisis.
Stellar Violets is a Western Australian Incorporated Association and Australian Registered Charity (DGR). Our Committee of Management is made up of local, inter-state, and international volunteer members, artist collaborators, and professionals giving pro-bono assistance.
