Darebin Backyard Harvest Festival (21-29 November) - 16 residential fruit & veg gardens open

I experience bouts of council envy every year when this festival approaches.
Sigh.
Held annually in November, the Backyard Harvest Festival is a celebration of home food growing traditions. Learn from passionate and knowledgeable local experts from a diversity of cultures. Visit home gardens, participate in gardening workshops and get inspired to create your own food garden this spring!


The festival is being held from Saturday 21 - Sunday 29 November, 2015 on weekends and early evenings during the week.

This year 16 of Darebin’s residential fruit and vegetable gardens will be open for display, and there are six different workshops to attend on everything from permaculture, aquaponics to backyard beekeeping and tree grafting.
