Come down to CERES Environment Park and get your hands dirty on our very own organic farm in East Brunswick. Organised specifically for the good ‘n’ fair food eaters of Melbourne for Fair Food Week, our two-hour workshop will get you doing real work on a seasonal organic farm that feeds the community – followed by a fair food feast, hosted onsite by The Merri Table.
You’ll start the day with a short talk & tour, followed by a variety of fun farm activities where you’ll get to cherish the chooks, propagate some seedlings, and generally get your hands dirty down on the farm. Having worked up a healthy appetite, we’ll retreat to the beautiful Merri Table to regenerate over a sumptuous organic lunch.
Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free Options Available.
