Hilton Harvest Community Garden. 

Organisation: Fremantle History Society

Published every two years, Fremantle Studies is a publication comprising articles and research focusing on the history and heritage of Fremantle. This 10th volume will contain papers from a diverse range of topics including institutional histories (Fremantle Library, Fremantle Art Collection, Deckchair Theatre), Fremantle links to the Crimean War, analysis of the history of the conservation movement in Fremantle and a window onto two local areas (Hilton and South Beach).

Organisation: Cycling Without Age

Cycling Without Age is an international, not-for-profit organisation which connects elderly (and less mobile) people to their community and local environment. The Australian arm promotes active citizenship across all ages and facilitates volunteering participation and social inclusion. It has recently raised funds for a trishaw bike to use in the Fremantle community. 

Organisation: Hilton Harvest

Hilton Harvest Community Garden is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a number of community events. The events will acknowledge the achievements and the dedication of its volunteers throughout the years, while strengthening its sustainability into the future and encouraging people to actively participate in the community and foster a sense of place.

Organisation: Auspiced Headspace Fremantle

The idea for Craft For Life came from two local business owners (Leah Vlatko of Sun and Flower Studios and Charlotte Kenyon of Cirqlate) who wanted to give back to the community in a way that utilised their craft skills. The project will see likeminded people in the community come together and make craft in a free, non-prescriptive, friendly environment.

Organisation: Auspiced White Gum Valley Orchard

The group is celebrating Sullivan Hall’s 60th anniversary and promoting the role it has played over the years in creating ‘community’. It will also develop awareness of Aboriginal history and connection to the local area and honour community spirit legacy which is still strong today.  

Organisation: Bike Budz

Bike Budz is a community group that will provide people in the greater Fremantle area with regular access to a bicycle workshop space, and the training and support to teach participants to fix and maintain bikes themselves. Donated bikes will be provided to participants from the workshops and outreach programs via partnership with the Fremantle Recycling Centre, with priority given to people in need. The workshop will be open to everyone, specifically targeting lower income earners who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford to buy or maintain a bike. 

Organisation: Fremantle Women’s Health Centre

Fremantle Women’s Health Centre are looking to transform a cramped and under-utilised urban space into an inviting and healthy green space to be enjoyed by clients, staff, the neighbourhood and wider community. The group aims to create a productive, sustainable and inclusive garden environment, providing access to low income and at-risk women who may not otherwise be accessing community gardens and other healthy food suppliers.
