Its October and Spring has truly Sprung with its wild and unpredictable nature, pretty much in step with Melbourne's reputation for four seasons in one day.
PepperTree Place hosts the October Incr-Edible Food Swap on Saturday 4th October, 10am-12pm and the place will be buzzing this month! Not only will there be the bountiful amount of free, swappable, fresh produce that pours in through the gates with the friendly locals but Ross will be wielding sourdough and have the wood oven fired up for his Sourdough Bread Making Workshop starting at 10.30pm. If you've ever wanted to get down and dusty with bread makers, here's your chance to get close up and personal with the living breathing culture that is sourdough. Register at 10.15am for $10 a head.
Also this week, Moreland City Council are looking to consult with community about their new Community Food Growing Policy. A Moreland City Council staff and a member from the Moreland Food Gardens Network will be attending the food swap on that Saturday 4 October from 10am–12pm. Everyone is welcome to attend to discuss and share ideas.
As is usual for the Coburg Incr-Edible Food Swap Saturday, the nursery is full of beans (bush beans actually) and has a huge variety of affordable plants and products ready for spring planting. We have bales of lucerne, hardwood stakes, bamboo stakes, bags of pulverised sheep manure and bargain bags of primo potting mix also available.
The pop up cafe will be serving an array of hand baked goodies and the best coffee and tea this side of the Merri Creek.
And just a heads up that our annual Spring Garden Fiesta is just around the corner on the 8th November, 10am-4pm - a huge day of music, inspiring and informative workshops, cool, nature inspired kid's activities, info and displays, story telling and much much more! Share this flyer with your friends and family - its a free event and everyone is welcome!!
