Having moved to Montmorency only 6 years ago, it was only recently that we discovered Edendale Community Farm. It happened to be my sister who had booked to celebrate my nephew's birthday here, as the children love animals and there is definitely plenty to see here!

The farm animals are free to roam, you will see sheep and horses grazing, goats being milked, hens, roosters and huge turkeys as well, happily going on their daily business.

Edendale Farm provides an interactive experience for the community and visitors alike. There is an education centre to support sustainable living practices, a recycling station where you can bring in your old batteries, light globes, X-rays and more.

Cafe Eden is a food truck set up in the grounds of Edendale Farm at Eltham. I visit here regularly to have a delicious smoothie or cup of hot loose leaf brewed chai tea. They also serve alfresco food, refreshments and afternoon tea. It's a gorgeous setting, here is where you can let the kids run around and have fun exploring the gardens and say hello to the farm animals!

Did I mention you can also shop for Indigenous plants? Wander through the beautiful gardens and see their sustainably-grown vegetable gardens and fruit orchard! Why not bring a picnic and make it a wonderful day out with family and friends!

Building Nature' is the latest public artwork on display at Edendale. Created by artist Felicity Gordon for the Practically Green Festival in 2014, the work celebrates the use of natural materials by local builders and artists in the Nillumbik area. She also created the Eltham Copper Butterfly!
