......The Lemontree Project!
After a month and a half of promotional work for our give away we are excited to announce The Lemon Tree Project as the winner.
We had some great submissions from wonderful organisations around the world, and we thank everyone who got involved and shared their project with us. We truly wish we could help you all.
We are looking forward to working with The Lemon Tree Project. They are certainly community driven and progressive and their project is exciting. The Lemon Tree Project is all about enabling communities to connect with one another towards a common goal of establishing a communal garden. Jodi from The Lemon Tree Project explained that it was important for the organisation to be ultimately led by the community themselves. The website would need to facilitate this goal to enable them to connect with their neighbours and lead them through the process of obtaining permissions from the council, planning and then building their garden. There are already some great communal gardens out there, Lemon Tree alley in Craigieburn north of Melbourne being the standout example.
