Source Community Wholefoods Cooperative is a fantastic initiative on the University of Tasmania Hobart campus. Source was initiated in 2005 by a group of students & community members interested in creating a more sustainable future. Source provides a place to explore social and environmental issues, acting as a living example of urban sustainability that encourages community involvement and creativity.
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.
