Sustain first started sourcing local and seasonal produce direct from farmers close to Melbourne- including our very own urban farmer Clare, at the MFH urban farm in Alphington- back in September 2019. Remember 2019?? It's been a rollercoaster ride since then. With the support of Working for Vic and the awesome Sustain/MFH team, we sourced and distributed over 14 tonnes of local produce to hundreds of Melbourne homes in the last 18 months, and paid $120,000 to 20 local producers and makers.
Check out the awesome short film that our very own WfV team made about this work here on the Sustain YoutTube channel. In exciting news, the next Sustain urban farm is now being created- at the St.Mary's Vicarage in Preston- read about it here.
