Comments off 104 Views1


Big things are happening underground at FareShare Kitchen Garden, Abbotsford and we’ll be opening our gates to the community on Saturday, October 14 for an insight into urban food production.

FareShare volunteers harvest carrots grown on a former waste ground at Victoria Park

Come and explore the garden and learn how FareShare is utilising small plots of urban land to grow vegetables for our nutritious meals.

Hear from gardening experts and volunteers on everything you need to know about growing food in Melbourne. Topics include edible plants, urban agriculture, bee keeping, composting and spring gardening.

Pippa French of 3000 Acres who helped us secure the former waste ground as a kitchen garden, and Chris Williams, from the University of Melbourne’s Burnley horticultural campus, are among the guest speakers.

There will be guided tours, activities for kids and seedlings available by gold coin donation.

Gates open on Lulie St (between Victoria Park station and Victoria Park oval) from 10am to 1pm. Watch this page for more details.

We will also be opening the gates to our extensive kitchen garden site on the Baguley Family Farm in Clayton South and to our kitchen garden at Moorabbin Airport between 10am and 1pm on October 28. Standby for more details.
