Vad du kommer att göra

You'll first tour the organic mini-farm and focus on its unique features - how the garden and animals are organised and integrated using permaculture thinking. We talk about how chooks, goats and pigs can all be used for various purposes on a self-sufficient property.

You'll also learn great techniques to grow organic vegies, berries and fruits successfully - how to make compost and enrich your soil organically, how to cultivate and weed efficiently, how to time your plantings for maximum productivity, and how to raise plants from seed to advanced seedlings before planting in your garden to make the most of your garden space.

We'll finish by learning how to milk a goat, which is a fun thing to try and also a handy skill if you're considering becoming more self-sufficient one day.

We'll serve a tasty morning tea during the workshop - prepared by Gunilla, who runs Home Grown on Piper cafe in Kyneton, so it'll be of gourmet quality.

You can pick and take home some organic produce, seeds or seedlings for your garden at the end of the workshop. The aim is to inspire you in your own garden, so you'll feel confident to take the seedlings home and grow them successfully yourself!

You receive free coffees at our cafe Home Grown on Piper if you order lunch there on your way home after the workshop, which should top off an enjoyable and inspiring day.

I am a passionate organic grower with 20 years' experience, and I supply vegies, berries and fruits to 30 families in Castlemaine and Kyneton. I combine techniques from both permaculture and traditional organic gardening to produce an amazing variety and quantity of produce in a small space on my mini-farm. I am also an experienced teacher, so I communicate clearly and engagingly. I aim for the workshop to be relaxing and enjoyable, but I also aim to convey plenty of information. I want you to come away inspired with ideas and enthusiasm for your own garden!

Var ni kommer att vara

The workshop is held at the beautiful Metcalfe Mini-Farm, where we organically grow vegies, berries and fruits to feed thirty local families. It's a family-run farm of just over an acre, with a half-acre vegie garden, berry fields, small orchard, dairy goats, pigs and chooks. This integrated, compact, productive property is the culmination of a dream Rob in particular has worked towards for 20 years, including 9 years at this property.

Rob made our visit fun and informative. He made a real effort to shape our experience around our limited knowledge and ensure he covers the topics and activities we were really interested in and steered away from the activities we weren’t. We left amazed at what can be achieved in a small market garden, much more aware of the practice of permaculture and enthused to take away and apply the learnings at home. Morning tea was great too! If you’re looking for something different and fun don’t miss the opportunity !

Great experience! Rob is extremely knowledgeable and generous with his time. We learned so much about small scale organic farming and permaculture. Its amazing how productive Rob is with his land and how well all the different elements complement each other. He walked us through the whole process and we felt inspired to try the things we learned at home. Would definitely recommend!

This was a great experience we learned a lot about growing organic food and we also got to pick some from the farm and take it home with us.

This was an absolutely unique and wonderful experience! Rob was extremely Engaging, friendly, knowledgeable and well exposed. We felt so welcomed and comfortable with him, and his hard work has really paid off, as his farm is outstanding. Getting to know him was a privilege and he has been through a lot in life to find joy where he is now. My husband Alwin and I really recommend visiting Rob and Gunilla (who was working at her cafe), you will not regret it at all! They’re a generous, gifted and humble family. Extremely inspiring and eye opening. Thank you! ALSO, they have the sweetest goats and dogs.

Rob was genuine and extremely friendly, and had great activities for us to do around his farm. He was informative and for someone with little to no experience in gardening, I very much enjoyed the tips and advice which has encouraged me to start my own garden! The animals at the farm were awesome, specially the two extremely friendly doggos!
