The Dunkeld Old Bakery is now home to Dunkeld's first Community Produce cart!
The cart came to life after bakery manager Belinda heard several local gardens were overflowing. 'With so much produce growing at this time of year most of us just don't have the time to utilise it', Belinda said. Whilst produce carts are popping up in a number of places, Belinda first noticed one at a small cafe in Robe SA and knew this year it would be worthwhile implementing a similar thing in Dunkeld. "We launched the cart on the Australia Day long weekend, there were plenty of visitors passing through town and they just loved it", Belinda said.
So, if you're in or passing through Dunkeld, drop by the cart and give your excess produce! If you don't have produce to give, you can still take what you need and choose to give a small donation, all of which are passed onto the Dunkeld Consolidated School's Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program.
Well done Dunkeld Old Bakery for making fresh produce more readily available and reducing waste for many!
