One of the things we love doing the most is supporting more opportunities for free food in the community.
Last year The Hidden Orchard harvest leader and health promotion champion, Amanda Collins, collaborated with the City of Ballarat Council to organise planting of several fruit trees.
The trees are located across from Ballarat Community Health’s Sebastopol centre on Victory Park. With some love, attention, watering and words of affirmation we expect these trees will grow into an abundant fruit producing micro-orchard.
We can’t thank Amanda, the council and her volunteers enough for the effort they continue to put into projects like this.
If you pass the micro-orchard trees, remember to whisper some words of encouragement!
