Growing food is an important skill for now and the future.
We are partnering with New Town High School, the New Town High Old Boys Association & the Dirty Hands composting collective to establish a community education garden at St Johns Creative Living Park.
We are thrilled to welcome experienced food growers including the legendary David Stephens who brings years of expertise in community gardens to help us establish a space where people of all ages can learn to grow food at home.
We pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land the muwinina people and their elders past present & emerging.
We also acknowledge Hobart City Farm for the 6 years they spent improving the soil and building the poly tunnel at the site.
Urban Food Project
With climate breakdown threatening our agricultural systems and the availability and price of fresh food making it more difficult for many people to access, it’s never been a better time to develop gardening skills.
We are supporting initiatives that are helping not only to feed people in order to promote better health, but to help mitigate the effects of climate breakdown.
