Short description—organiser

SOURCE Community Wholefoods is a community-driven, not-for-profit venture that includes:
+ AN ORGANIC FOOD CO-OPERATIVE: providing affordable organic, local, minimally packaged & fair trade goods. The co-op lives in a beautiful straw and earth bale building located on French St. on the campus of the University of Tasmania, in Sandy Bay.
+ A COMMUNITY GARDEN: providing a fun & healthy way for people to spend time together, share valuable skills & grow their own food. The garden includes a wood-fired pizza oven, small apple orchard and composting facility.

Source was initiated in 2005 by a group of students & community members interested in creating a more sustainable future. The centre provides a place to explore social and environmental issues, acting as a living example of urban sustainability which encourages community involvement and creativity.
