Katherine, NT

320 kilometres southeast of Darwin, Katherine has long relied on produce being freighted from the capital at a high fee and at a cost to quality. Enter Food Ladder!

The Katherine Food Ladder serves as a healthy hub of community engagement, where nutrition, STEM technology and horticulture is taught, and locals grow fresh food in the centre of the town.

Providing both employment and meaningful work for Community Development Program (CDP) participants, Food Ladder produce is also sold to local stores/cafes, while produce boxes are available to local residents.
