Harvest is in full swing at Viterra’s Kimba silos as grain growers and carriers make deliveries with the site’s scenic silo art in view.
Viterra is proud to be supporting the Kimba community by providing its working silos as a canvas for the 30 metre high mural.
Artist Cam Scale transformed the Viterra-owned silos with an amazing mural of a child and sunset landscape.
James Murray, Operations Manager for the Western region, said the project had revitalised the town since its launch in September.
“Viterra is a proud supporter of regional communities and it has been fantastic to work closely with the Kimba community to see this project come to life,” James said.
“Kimba is an operational site for us and plays an important part in receiving and storing grain through the harvest period.
“We are very pleased with the interest the artwork has already received and look forward to it being a drawcard for Kimba for years to come.
“The hard work and passion of the Igniting Kimba Working Group in driving this project has been terrific. They have been very conscious of our needs to keep operating the site, and maintain the safety of the community.”
Sue Woolford, Igniting Kimba committee member, said Viterra’s support had been instrumental.
“All of this would not have been possible without Viterra’s support from the beginning when we approached them with the idea,” Sue said.
“Viterra’s foresight in agreeing to the project by seeing the benefit it would bring to our small community, and their ongoing assistance throughout the year in bringing it to fruition was integral to its success.”
