Why Beyond The Box? – Exploring Housing on the Sunshine Coast

Deer Crossing The Art Farm has partnered with The Affordable Housing Society on a project called Cover The Coast: Alliance for Affordable Housing. Beyond The Box has been inspired by the ongoing efforts of our community to combat the housing crisis.
