The Goodman Foundation constructed a one acre charity garden for FareShare in 2016. The Kitchen Garden not only provides fresh vegetables to the tables of their clients, it also provides an opportunity for the local community to participate in the garden maintenance. Volunteers typically include school children and retirees.

This project is an example of how we can enhance environments for the benefit of the local communities, through the provision of a beautiful and functional kitchen garden. We are able to optimise green space and bring fresh food to the tables of vulnerable communities.
