Working with the local community to develop aesthetically pleasing, functional, accessible and edible landscapes in Hills villages.

Through our work on the Ridge Project we discovered many schools, community organisations and businesses that were passionate about the value of good food choices and gardening.  This feedback has led to our current project where we are excited to be working with the local community to implement their ideas for Edible Villages in the Hills.

Sassafras has been identified as the ‘pilot’ village for this project and we are working at creating momentum to establish a strong volunteer-based team to assist with implementing the project in Sassafras.

We are grateful to the Yarra Ranges Council who through Community and Partnership Grants have provided funding for this project.
