Recipes from the residents of Loxton Lodge, November 2007

This cookbook was a joint project between Cultivating Community and Melbourne’s Inner South Community Health Service through its High Rise Support Program and was generously supported by Stonnington City Council.

Cultivating Community is a not-for-profit organisation that was initially set up to support community garden projects in inner-city public housing estates and now promotes and supports the development of projects like these in the wider community. Access to such a basic resource as soil is limited in the inner city: community gardens are extremely popular, so there are long waiting lists. The only real solution is to create more community gardens — every inner suburb should have one!

The High rise Support Program aims to improve the health and wellbeing of tenants at five high-rise public housing estates in Melbourn’s inner south, which includes Loxton Lodge, by offering a rich range of activities to tenants, such as exerciser groups, social activities, community gardens, and educational programs.
