You are invited to a Fitzroy Community Food Centre focus group on Thursday April 24th 2014, 10.30am – 12.30pm at the Atherton Gardens Community Kitchen located next to the Community Garden at the rear of 125 Napier Street Fitzroy.
Cultivating Community is engaged in an exciting feasibility study of the community kitchen and garden space based at Atherton Gardens in Fitzroy. Currently Cultivating Community coordinates the management of the kitchen, supporting and encouraging a variety of groups who utilise the space, and also run a weekly cooking program (http://www.cultivatingcommunity.org.au/food-systems-projects/community-kitchen/)
