Connecting gardens, groups and growers to create a more resilient food future in Darebin

Darebin Fruit Squad; Getting ‘fresh’ with our visitors.

‘Tis a beautiful sight to behold – the DIVRS Food Store fridge packed to the brim with food that has come solely from our own back garden and the immediate neighbourhood!

Our magnificent volunteers have been out in the sunshine harvesting, bundling and bagging lettuce, kale, spinach and silver beet and while the greens keep on giving; tomatoes, beans and cucumbers promise the same.

Meanwhile the Fruit Squad brought in over 50 kilos of plums and oranges, donated by our generous householders, bumping up the harvest tally now to 4126kg (2678.9kg since its auspice by DIVRS in September 2014).

It was all gone by the end of the day, to DIVRS visitors; over $500 worth of food straight from the gardens to their kitchens. That’s fresh!
