Local residents are descending on Glandore Community Centre’s garden to cook up a storm at its wood fired pizza oven.

The garden is also proving a hit for events with more than 35 people coming together to cook and share pizza as part of a program to help people from diverse cultures become more involved in their community.

The multicultural pizza day was the culmination of a 10-week project which involved people from countries as diverse as China, South Africa, India, Sri Lanka and Ethiopia.    

The project was run by Adelaide University occupational therapy students Emma Jackson and Mark Zhang.

“We worked with Marion’s neighbourhood centres and the local community to look at ways of improving the health and wellbeing of people from diverse cultures,” Ms Jackson said.

“The centres are helping people make connections, learn and increase their sense of belonging.”

Individuals and groups can book into events, including gardening workshops, held around the wood oven, by contacting Glandore Community Centre, 25 Naldera Street, Glandore, tel 8371 1139.
