Sharing the Harvest

Cliff Came up with a top idea for our excess produce and was able to hand over a lot of food to a local charity called The Food Barn Warrawong, which is connected to The Hope Centre.

This is yet another positive and wonderful way of how a community garden can impact the neighbourhood and society. As people are increasingly finding it hard to keep up with bills or even find somewhere to live, community gardens is one of many solutions I believe that can address the mentioned crisis.

More focus and execution of such projects need to be implemented as this demonstrates a positive solution to an ever growing problem of families being short of cash. The reason why its important; is a community garden promotes friendship,  food education, innovation, hope and being able to obtain a yield. 

With that yield comes food, recipes, confidence, a sense of joy and being able to give back to the community and these things should never be underestimated!!
