Adelaide Hills gardens of hope

26 February 2021
Volunteers working on house front garden.

The Cudlee Creek bushfire, which burned in the final week of 2019, destroyed 98 homes. It affected the towns and communities of:

  • Cudlee Creek,
  • Lobethal,
  • Woodside,
  • Brukunga,
  • Harrogate,
  • Charleston,
  • Lenswood,
  • Gumeracha,
  • Kenton Valley,
  • Montacute, and
  • Mt Torrens.

To date, only three of these homes have been re-built with a further 53 are under construction.


A $40,000 grant from Bendigo Bank’s SA Bushfire Appeal will assist residents. Once their homes are complete, it will go to rebuilding and replanting their gardens.

This will provide a visual relief from fire-damaged landscapes. The project aims to re-establish a sense normality to the affected communities.

Community Enterprise Foundation is proud to be working with Habitat for Humanity South Australia to support the delivery of the Gardens of Hope project.
