Food Links project

Food Links is a project initiated by Castlemaine Community House, Maldon Neighbourhood Centre and Newstead Community Garden to bolster community connections and gardens across our Shire. The project has received $10,000 of funding from the Foundation for Regional and Rural Renewal (FRRR).

The main aim of Food Links is to strengthen local food security through community collaboration and education, connecting people with existing community gardens. The project seeks to:

improve food growing skills in a changing climate
increase produce supply for community food programs
strengthen links between our community gardens and community food programs
increase active involvement in community garden care.

Food Links has two aspects. The first is to support garden leaders and volunteers at a local community garden level, and then to work with them to identify local needs and priorities for each community garden (eg. education, wider community engagement, identifying local food needs, etc).

The second will be to link gardens with one another, identify shared needs and opportunities, connect food needs to gardens (eg community lunches, food banks, food relief schemes) and increase awareness of community gardens across the region.
