Unley Community Groups have been working in their local government area over several years to encourage people to grow more of their own food at home. Their projects have included the distribution of Affordable Gardening Kits to residents, and the Grow Grow Grow! workshop series on gardening topics including pruning, improving soil, container gardening, verge gardens, bush foods and native bees.
They have worked with the City of Unley on the development of the council’s Food Security Strategy. The City of Unley have supported the group activities with grant funding. The Affordable Gardening Kits Project was awarded City of Unley Community Event of the Year in the Australia Day Awards on 26 January 2014.
