'Canberrans, a close 'knit' community'

The Project

Down to Earth Practical Solutions is conducting a community project and seek interested individuals and groups to knit blankets, scarves and beanies for Canberra's homeless this winter. We invite schools, early childhood services, aged care services, knitting clubs and all Canberrans interested in being involved with a project that aims to support Canberra's homeless this winter, debunk perceptions of homelessness and bring our community together.

The Salvation Army & You

Down to Earth Practical Solutions has met with the The Salvation Army and together will distribute all items knitted items.

Down to Earth would like to obtain photos and or stories of those contributing so that a collection of collaborative stories can be shared with the recipients of the knit wear.

'Community Connectors' Down to Earth have 'community connectors' so if you or your group can only knit so much and need someone else to stitch it together to finalise, that is not a problem.


All knitted items will be collected by 15 June 2017 by Down to Earth Practical Solutions.
