The Cockatoo Sustainable Food Project

The Cockatoo Sustainable Food Project ran for six months through the Spring, Summer and Autumn of 2020-21, as part of the Working For Victoria program.  The project aimed to support amateur local gardeners in producing fruit, vegetables and other useful plants to increase their self-sufficiency. The project was run through the Cockatoo Community House and worked with local organisations such as the Hills Community Gardens and the Connecting Cockatoo Communities.

As part of the project a local Facebook group was established. Visit Cockatoo Sustainable Food Project Facebook Group to connect with the local growing community.

A series of monthly growing guides were also developed specifically for local growing conditions in the hills.

***UPDATE***
Planning is underway for our clean up mission this Sat 19th and Sunday 20th June. To manage the safety of our volunteer clean up crews and to ensure we dont hinder emergency services or contractors using heavy machinery etc, careful consideration is being given to where and when our crews can attend certain areas.
At this stage there are still many road closures and Traffic Management Points (TMP's) which prevent us from gaining access to the more dangerous areas. See map below.

Our plan is to commence clean up works at accessible homes outside the restricted area first and then basically work our way uphill as the road closures are lifted over the next few weekends.

Residents living within the red ring are strongly encouraged to register your request for help asap on the below link, this will allow us to organise getting a crew to you when the road closures are lifted.

ASSISTANCE REQUEST FORM

For residents living outside the restricted area and within the map we need your requests for help asap so crews can be organised for this weekend. The work in these areas is spread out but is just as important as to the residents in the restricted areas.

PLEASE DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU SHOULDN'T REQUEST ASSISTANCE BECAUSE YOU FEEL YOU MAY BE PULLING OUR RESOURCES AWAY FROM THE WORSE EFFECTED HILLTOP AREAS. IN REALITY WE JUST CANT GET TO THEM YET (BUT WE WILL)

If you know someone who is struggling with a big clean up, please encourage them to seek help and get their request in so we can help them before we tackle the hilltop areas.

We are getting a good response from volunteers who want to come and help you clean up so PLEASE request some help if you need a hand. Please like and share this post to help get the word out there. Thanks - Paul
