In 2012, the Kongwak Hills Landcare Group formed and adopted its motto ‘from backyard to bush’. They engaged their whole community in upgrading a reserve ‘Pioneer Park’ in the centre of town. Their model was simple, connect food and the environment in a fun, social setting.
They held sustainable food nights and generated interest around food production. The group has developed a GeoTour of the Kongwak Pioneer Reserver which includes information podcasts about its history and the flora and fauna within the reserve.
