What we’re doing…
The Grow Together project is supporting 700 individuals and families in Melbourne’s South East to start growing food at home. Together with DFFH and nine Neighbourhood Houses, we’ll be distributing ‘planter kits’ to local people who may benefit the most from support to start edible gardening. This includes people living in supported residential services, social housing, caravan parks, rooming houses, and young people living in residential units.
Grow Together aims to increase food security for local households in the City of Greater Dandenong, City of Casey and Cardinia Shire – while also supporting more people to experience the health and climate co-benefits of edible gardening.
This project builds upon the success of the Grow Together pilot, led by enliven Victoria in 2020. More information about the pilot project can be found here.
