Backyard Harvest Festival
The Backyard Harvest Festival is a celebration of home food growing traditions
What is the Backyard Harvest Festival?
Held annually in November, the Backyard Harvest Festival is a celebration of home food growing traditions.
Learn from passionate and knowledgeable local experts from a diversity of cultures.
Visit home gardens, participate in gardening workshops and get inspired to create your own food garden this spring!
The 2017 festival is taking place from Saturday 18 - Sunday 26 November.
For the first time, Darebin Council is partnering with Moreland Council as well as long standing partners Darebin Ethnic Communities Council (DECC) to deliver the festival.
This means there will be even more inspiring and abundant gardens to see this year located in both Darebin and Moreland helping build a strong sense of community around homegrown and homemade food.
Are you interested in volunteering or opening your garden at the next festival?
The festival is built on the generosity of our talented home gardeners who not only open their gardens for tours, but also hold workshops on a wide range of topics such as keeping chickens and quails, water efficient gardens, grafting fruit trees and aquaponics.
Other volunteers help as a guide or translator for home gardeners. They benefit first hand from the wealth of food cultivating skills shared by passionate gardeners from a diversity of cultures.
Visit the Darebin Council event page to fill out the on-line Expression of Interest form. The form is due by Friday, 1 September 2017.
