Cultivating Community is a Melbourne based not for profit organisation creating joyful, connected communities who care for each other and the earth.

Cultivating Community © 2020           ABN 26 998 940 299

Incorporated Association Reg No. A0032404G

Our mission is to work with diverse and low-income communities to create fair, secure and resilient food systems

Our vision is for joyful, connected communities who care for each other and our earth

 

Our purpose is to inspire a healthy and just world

Through our work in Public Housing Community Gardens we provide opportunities for low income and migrant communities to access healthy, affordable and culturally appropriate food. These gardens are wonderful places of cultural sharing and harmony.  

Our Community Food Centres and activities allow people to gather and connect over food, sharing and learning skills, knowledge and our wonderfully diverse cultures.

 

Within our School Food Garden program and our After School Cooking classes, we create opportunities for kids to learn how to grow and prepare food, reduce food waste and act sustainably.

We coordinate, participate in and advise on projects relating to food security and food waste issues.  Working with government bodies, local councils and other community groups we increase awareness of food insecurity, educate the community on the importance of food waste minimisation and the benefits of composting.  We support the establishment of community gardens providing advice on design through to governance models.

Our passionate staff foster connection in the communities they work within

Our board is made up

of a diverse group of dedicated  members who uphold our vision

 

Our story
