Set to the back drop of a bright blue Tasmanian sky the community of Clarence Plains in Tasmania recently came together with Mission Australia Housing to celebrate 4 years of working together.
Finishing up the year in 2016, more than 25 volunteers and students converged on Clarendon Vale Primary School in Clarence Plains, Tasmania for some hands-on fun, as they helped to construct the new 2,500-square-metre G.R.O.W community garden and outdoor classroom.
Food brings people together on many different levels. It’s nourishment of the soul and body; it’s truly love!
In 2013 Mission Australia Housing took over the management of 500 social homes in the suburbs of Clarendon Vale and Rokeby (now rebranded by the community as Clarence Plains) in Hobart, Tasmania. Through intensive research and community engagement, we learnt what it’s like for residents living here and also, what their hopes and dreams are for the future.
