Fresh & Local is in urban farming initiative that aims to transform abandoned or underutilised urban spaces into productive, fully-functioning gardens and farms. These urban interventions work to improve the city’s environment and contribute to its residents health and well-being.
At Fresh & Local, their mission is to contribute to a city where people understand and value the health and environmental benefits of locally grown, organic produce and have the knowledge and skills to grow their own food. Urban farming is also used as a base to build a community and create jobs. At the gardens, city dwellers can find the tools and knowledge to improve the way they live their urban lives.
