Food * Plant sale * Gardening workshops * Stories
Date and time: Saturday 3 December, 12 – 3pm Venue: LAB-14, 700 Swanston Street, Carlton
Explore the food cultures and gardening traditions of migrants and refugees from Africa, Asia and the Middle East living in inner city Melbourne, sample a selection of culturally diverse foods, and talk to cooks and gardeners from the local community.
Rare and unusual food plants for summer growing will be on sale including Sweet Potato, Kang Kong, Ginger and Turmeric. All plants have been grown through a collaboration between participants at the Carlton Neighbourhood Learning Centre and staff and students at the Burnley Campus of the University of Melbourne. Dr. Chris Williams from Burnley will lead free consultations on growing these food crops in Melbourne’s climate.
The Absolutely Famished Community Day is funded through the University of Melbourne engagement grant program and the Carlton Connect Initiative, and is part of Absolutely Famished, a creative exploration of future food and the 22nd century market place.
3000acres is an organisation I've known since it was a thought bubble in Kate Dundas' head to the the fully fledged NGO doing great work in urban agriculture that it is today! One of its dedicated staff is Pippa French, brainy botanist and (more importantly?) recent graduate of the Associate Degree In Urban Horticulture at Burnley. 3000 acres have just launched their first crowdfunding campaign to get another big project off the ground. The target is $10,000 and beyond... Support brings rewards from grow-your-own mushroom kits, Tallboy and Moose locally brewed beer and Patagonia adventure gear. Plus with the generous support of their sponsoring partner Patagonia - every dollar they raise will be matched!
