Young People Growing for Charity in Community Garden

Strengthening sustainability and community - (L-R) Adam Tjoelker, Paul Mukhin, Jordan Goehner-Drewe, Hugo Scott and Tara Shiels are the team behind the Food Forest community garden in Springwood.
A food forest has taken root in Springwood thanks to the inspiration of a group of local young people who will donate the fruits of their labour, literally, to people in need.

Supported by Blue Mountains City Council, the ‘Food Forest’ youth project is putting the foundations in place for their community garden located behind the Mountains Youth Services Team (MYST) building in Manners Park, Springwood town centre.

The project is one of four community development projects borne from the 2016 Project NOW Youth Congress in collaboration with OzGreen and the Blue Mountains Youth Council.

Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill said, “This is a wonderful initiative by local young people who are motivated by their selfless interest in sustainability and strengthening community. I’m looking forward to seeing the project develop.”

The Food Forest group will plant a selection of rare and unusual plants including Jaboticaba,  a Brazilian tree which produces fruit similar to a grape; Panama Berry which produces small, red caramel-flavoured fruit; and an Arnold Blood Orange. The harvest will be donated to local charities.

The ‘Food Forest’ youth project acknowledges the support of Bunnings Valley Heights for kindly providing high-quality soil to fill three large garden beds.

The project is due to be launched in Autumn this year.
