CERES Food Forest Working Bee

Sunday 7th May 2017 

10am - 3pm

 
To celebrate International Permaculture Day we are organising a community working bee in our Food Forest. Our Food Forest is home to our chooks and four rotational runs, terraces with fruit and nut trees and the newly built Honey Lane Hives bee display and teaching space. We would like to prep the area and plant some new trees to increase the number of productive plants and to create more shade options for our chooks.

So come and get your hands dirty, help us plant over 500 plants and seedlings and learn more about the fundamentals of a working Food Forest.

Our Site Horticulturalist Belinda Kennedy and Organic Farm Manager Meg Stewart will be leading the day's activities and share their knowledge about working on an organic farm and at CERES.

Tickets: $10/$8 CERES Members
(includes light lunch and short tour of CERES Organic Farm)


Bookings are essential.
