Model – The Community Harvest Project
What is The Community Harvest Project?
The Community Harvest Project is an initiative of the Hills Organic Box Scheme and the Yarra Valley Permaculture Group. It has been developed in response to growing pressures in the community, such as rising food, fuel and other living costs, social disconnection, climate change and peak oil.
The Project will work with individuals and groups to identify and map existing local food resources, increase the supply of local, sustainably produced food and connect people with the resources they need to begin growing their own sustainably produced food, support others in growing food, starting local food related enterprises and much more. In this way we intend to work with the community to build community and ensure access to healthy, affordable food, for everyone.
Information evenings begin in July in the Shire of Yarra Ranges. Further information evenings are in the process of being finalised.
