This year, EFFA is more focused on impact than ever before. Through a partnership with Digital Storytellers, and with support from Bank Australia, we offered a select group of eight environmental organisations the opportunity to attend a free 2-day workshop on how to make their own digital content with an iPhone. We have been so proud to be able to play these eight short films on the big screen at ACMI before our feature films - and now publish them on our website.
Seedwell is a project partnership between Marist 180 and The Salvation Army in Melbourne. It is run out of two sites, in Brunswick and St Kilda, and aims to teach young people and the broader community permaculture and sustainability skills, while providing food security, and mitigating against climate change in the inner city.
Seedwell supports volunteers, young people and community members, to grow food cheaply and in ecologically sustainable ways, and build beautiful gardens. Seedwell focuses on permaculture, nutritious meal preparation, social interaction and a sense of helping our planet. Everything you buy at our markets is grown with this ethos in mind, and all profits go back into helping our communities. We also run a range of workshops and permaculture design certificates.
