The Home Harvest Picnic at 30 Gastons Rd, Eltham, on Sunday 31 March 2019 from 4.30-8pm is hosted by Edendale Community Environment Farm. Their focus is on providing an interactive community and education centre to support sustainable living practices for the whole community. It's where you can learn about environmental issues including a demonstration of local solutions to global environmental challenges.
Be sure to book your FREE - $10 tickets as bookings are essential for all options. A talented chef and local students will be preparing an amazing picnic spread using home-grown produce received from local growers. You can register as a grower for FREE as long as you supply some of your home-grown produce for the picnic and you'll receive a prepared basket for you and up to three guests. For option 2, you can buy a picnic basket for $10 per person if you're not a grower but would still love to be a part of this great community event.
Last but not least, register for a FREE ticket and bring your own picnic. Register for the number of tickets you require and soak up the atmosphere with your own picnic goodies. All you then need to do is to enjoy a delicious community picnic in the beautiful surrounds of Edendale Farm. For over eight years Nillumbik and Banyule residents have been celebrating the autumn harvest through community events like this, and activities such as garden tours and workshops.
Edendale run school education programs, school holiday activities and venue space for parties and events if you need it. You can see their animals, explore the farm and enjoy sumptuous food and drink at Cafe Eden. You can learn more about recycling and other information and tips to help you live sustainably. They also sell indigenous plants and other products such as compost bins and worm farms and of course volunteers provide a valuable contribution to Edendale, so find out how you can get involved.
