Sustainable Communities members were at the planting of around 70 fruit and nut trees at the Morrie Harrell Reserve in Unley on Sunday 4 August 2012. Two of our members are on the Sustainability Advisory Committee of the Unley Council which has a Food Security Strategy now being implemented. As well as this planting some members are assisting people with the pruning of backyard fruit trees. Peter commented that it is amazing how much food is in people’s backyards. They have also identified a number of other green spaces in the Council area suitable for further planting of fruit and nut trees.
