Herbie on Hutt
Adelaide’s homeless are reaping the nutritional rewards of Herbie on Hutt, a retro sprouting place of fresh herbs and vegetables. Herbie on Hutt is parked in the Park Lands near the Hutt Street Centre on the corner of Hutt Road and South Terrace.
The Hutt Street Centre serves over 50,000 meals each year to people who access the Centre not only for sustenance, but showers and laundry facilities, social work and allied health services, recreation and education and employment assistance.
Herbie on Hutt is being cared for by the Hutt Street Centre’s older clients and will help promote healthy lifestyle choices, social and community engagement, lifelong learning and activities which enhance physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
All the fresh produce harvested from Herbie on Hutt is being added to the nutritious meals provided in the dining room at the Hutt Street Centre.
