Home Harvest Picnic

Connect, Grow, Eat, Enjoy – Home Harvest Picnic

For over eight years Nillumbik and Banyule residents have been celebrating the autumn harvest through community events and activities such as garden tours and workshops. In addition, an annual Home Harvest event has been held where participants registered to contribute some of their home grown produce to a shared meal produced by Eltham High School catering students under guidance from a professional Chef. 

The 2019 picnic will be held in the beautiful surrounds of Edendale Community Environment Farm on the afternoon / evening of March 31.

Home Harvest Picnic and ‘Harvest Time’ activities are made possible through a partnership between Nillumbik Shire Council, Banyule City Council, Local food Connect, Nillumbik Health and Eltham High School.
