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.
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, worm farming, 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.
