Fair Food Week at Coburg Farmers Market - volunteers needed (Sat 24th August)

Coburg Farmers Market

Hi everyone,
As part of Fair Food Week we're doing a few things including having a tour on Sunday 25th and contributing some surplus veg to an Open Table dinner.

Here's another way we can be involved.

The Moreland Food Gardens Network (which we are part of) is looking to host a table at the Coburg Farmers Market on Sat 24/8 between 8am - 1pm.

The market are planning to renovate the schools kitchen garden and promote a few local groups in a big tent. There will be a table which we and other groups in the network can staff to chat to people about what our groups are doing. It'll be informal and friendly, an easy way to spread the word.

Merri Corner Community Garden have committed to 8-11am, hopefully some other groups will step up too.

We need a couple of volunteers to cover 11am-1pm and to help with packing up. 
Who's up for it? Email us at if you are.

If you haven't been to check out the market, here's your chance!

We're working together for a vibrant, sustainable network of community gardening locations in Moreland.

Our a 100% volunteer-based non-profit community group currently manages two community gardens in West Brunswick and Pentridge a food forest (also in West Brunswick).

Stop and think for 1 minute and you'll come up with at least one good reason for having community gardens all over the place. In case you don't have a minute or need some help, here are our top five!
  1. To bring people together.
  2. To hold on to Moreland's character and gardening knowledge.
  3. To provide somewhere where people can do some physical activity, relax and enjoy themselves
  4. To encourage sustainable gardening
  5. To make it easy for people to get hold of healthy locally grown food
