A Damn good com­mu­nity project

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

ALANA Fluit, from Give A Damn, was the first win­ner of a mi­cro­grant at the in­au­gu­ral Vic Park Soup event.

She will spend the $830 raised to trans­form the run-down area be­hind the Chris­tian Cen­tre for So­cial Ac­tion on Al­bany High­way into a sus­tain­able gar­den for the whole com­mu­nity.

Par­tic­i­pants paid $10 for soup, salad and bread and the op­por­tu­nity vote for one of three com­mu­nity projects.

Ms Fluit’s project net­ted nearly 50 votes.

Held by the Vic Park Col­lec­tive, the neigh­bour­hood event will again be held on June 8.

Alana Fluit, Vic Park Tran­si­tion Net­work;s Megan Parry, Erin St­in­ton, from Vic Park Col­lec­tive and Keith Gre­gory, of Bush Tukka Fu­sion.
