    Is it possible to volunteer in any of these community gardens or farms? We are hoping to gather a group of urban Uni students, to provide support whilst developing awareness. =)

    I co-ordinate a buyers group which is a community run project in Alice Springs which buys and distributes locally produced food.

    We have over 30 members which are interested in buying fresh food from local gardens and farms. Food from anywhere in Central Australia is local!

    If you would like more information you can email me on,
    Phone 08 8952 2950 or
    visit us on Facebook “Food for Alice”.

    We are looking for members, volunteers and food producers.

    Hope to hear from you soon!
