Activities at the August 9 party included a petting zoo, roving frost fairies and recycled art activities and a Junkadelic music performance.

There were just six homes on the ground and 16 residents when the community hub first opened its doors.

Today, there are more than 235 occupied homes, 630 residents and Sprout has grown into a significant part of the community.

The multi-use venue combines a social enterprise cafe, co-working space, event space, a digital community portal and a community-led grassroots fund.

The Sprout 12-month social impact scorecard includes events from craft workshops, youth computer coding group and mum meet-ups to small business support sessions.
