Our vision is Local Food, No Waste. And we brought this vision to our social enterprise cafe, The Local, at The Hub, 233 Barker St Castlemaine. However, sadly, while the vision was strong and we received incredible support from donors, a crowdfunding campaign and our community, we made the difficult decision to cease trading on 16 December 2017, in order to remain financially responsible.
It really was an amazing year of deliciousness. We have so much gratitude for our amazing local suppliers, our community and everyone who shared our vision. This chapter may be coming to an end, but there are already new ideas brimming about how we can achieve Local Food No Waste with new Growing Abundance projects…stay tuned.
