Chadstone Food Forest has been running community events in partnership with Link Health and Community and there's but two events left of the four, so don't miss it. This updated series of online events welcomes community members to the food forest. With COVID-19 at the doorstep, the interest in edible gardening has blossomed as people are staying home more with a bit more time on their hands. It's also a great family activity to enjoy as children learn where their food really comes from. These events teach you more about edible gardening, permaculture and local environments. Be sure to BOOK IN for the sessions left to receive your connection details.

Sun 28 Jun 2-3.30pm - Seasonal early-winter gardening, with Karen Sutherland of Edible Eden Design - Book HERE.
Sun 5 Jul 2-3.30pm - Permaculture Fundamentals with Jono Long - Book HERE.

Jono will thirst your quench for permaculture and show you how you can use permaculture principles to grow your own food and help the planet by being mindful of sustainability and the environment. Take a virtual walk through the Chadstone Food Forest to see some of the principles in action and discuss how you can adapt that to home and public spaces. Jono is a Chadstone based permaculture practitioner and has helped develop permaculture gardens in Melbourne and taught the subject at CERES and the CAE

Join Karen for topics such as preserving herbs for tea, pre-sprouting of seeds, vegetables and herbs to plant now, nurturing the winter vegetable garden, perennial edibles and more. This online session showcases some of her latest projects and there'll be time for a bit of Q&A from participants. Karen writes for Organic Gardener and Green Magazine and has self-published her first book, Tomato, with gardening guru Penny Woodward and cookery writer Janice Sutton. Featured a number of times on television, you'll also find Karen on her YouTube Channel.
