Comes a Time for Harvest
Harvesting home grown produce is rewarding and satisfying part of being a gardener. After nurturing plants and keeping watch over the hot summer, the harvest is the best part. The best of this project is that the Adelaide Botanical gardens have done all the hard work of nurturing the crop, but are happy for all to share in the proceeds of the harvest.

City Crop
The Adelaide Botanical Gardens have devised a project called City Crop, that features the planting and harvesting of a huge crop of corn. The crop of corn was planted in October 2014 and will be ready for harvest nearing the end of summer. As with the planting, the public is now invited to share in the harvest.

Harvest Day
Harvest day will be on February 1st 2015 and will include activities for the whole family. Families will also be able to enjoy free corn themed children's activities and a pop up farmers market featuring stalls by local producers. There will be opportunities to learn how to recognise ripe corncobs and test, tag and pick the produce. Kids can get hands-on in the garden and discover the joy of growing fresh, healthy food and eat it too.
