This woman started a “Food is Free” laneway next to the side of her house that she rents. The entire community supports the project by sharing their own “extras” and working together to take care of the plants that are growing there. Everything is free.
“The concept that something is free blows peoples’ minds,” says Risdale to Happen. And yet the rewards far outreach the giving or receiving of food, as Risdale has seen from her own experience with the free-food laneway she started at the corner of Ripon St Sth and Warrior Place, Ballarat, Australia. The laneway has reinvigorated the sense of community.-“ThePlaidZebra.com”
