MFGN Social- September 18th 6:30pm

Moreland Food Gardens Network (MFGN) quarterly social events are informal get-togethers for anyone interested in urban agriculture, local, sustainable and/or community-based food growing. Everyone is welcome. We hear from interesting speakers then talk with them and generally catch up on what's been happening, renew connections and make new ones.
 
We're all set for the next MFGN Social on Friday night 18th September (details below). 
 
There will be an update and discussion on the City of Moreland Urban Agriculture policy/strategy. 
 
AND Nicole Furze (from Luscombe St community garden) is going to talk about the pop up garlic course in which she is participating, run by Farmer Incubator, designed to help aspiring farmers to have a go. As part of the project, a small amount of land is given to each farmer for the duration of the course.

Farmer Incubator- Pop up Garlic Farmers
"In this program – the first incarnation of Farmer Incubator based in Melbourne, Australia – you invest in a crop: sow the seed, tend the crop, take it to market. Participants, Farmer Incubator, and our farmer, marketing and food industry friends will work together for one season of growing.
This is experiential learning. We make it possible by providing a patch and the stuff you need to know."
