Did you know that 10 cents from every dollar you spend at Sprout Hub Alkimos Beach goes into the Seedling Fund? The Seedling Fund is a community-led grant initiative that aims to promote and enable local groups to do great things in the community. In a process similar to crowd funding, the community votes for which projects get the majority of the $’s. We call it a ground up grant – money raised by the community, for the community.

The plan is to run a series of creative workshops for 75 local kids and to organise for their artwork to be showcased in Alkimos Beach for the community to enjoy, and ultimately inspire more children!
