Home Harvest Picnic

Connect, Grow, Eat, Enjoy

Home Harvest events have always been about a community, the satisfaction of growing your own produce and the pure pleasure of sharing and eating it with others. It's a celebration of home grown produce and local food.

With the uncertainty around public gatherings this season, the celebration will look a little different - but the satisfaction and pleasure of sharing will remain.

Join the Home Harvest Facebook community

Share your home growing tips and tricks, learn from other local growers and find out about upcoming webinars, workshops and cooking demonstrations on Facebook.com/HomeHarvestCommunityHub

This year enjoy your picnic with family and friends as the restrictions allow on February 28. Although we won't all be together at Edendale, we can follow the journey together. 

 

Home Harvest Seed Libraries

Calling all artists and makers

As part of this year’s Home Harvest, Nillumbik and Banyule Councils have teamed up with Yarra Plenty Regional Libraries to commission a local artist or maker to design and create a series of eight Seed Libraries to be located across the two municipalities.

These Seed Libraries will give the community an opportunity to share seeds and the experience of home growing.

Proposals should be creative, original, exciting and appropriate for the location and local community.

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented, professional artist or maker to create an original, practical and long-lasting work which will be used by the community ongoing.
