What better way to lead into the Urban Agriculture Forum than with a free Open Garden Day on Saturday 19th November all across Melbourne!

Please note that you do not need to register for or attend the UA Forum to participate in Open Garden Day!

We invite all community, school, backyard, rooftop and balcony gardeners, urban and peri-urban farmers to form a part of this day showcasing the rich diversity of gardens, projects and initiatives that exist within the City of Melbourne and form part of our a city-wide Urban Agriculture Open Garden Day

We are looking for ALL gardeners and farmers across Melbourne to get involved and open up their gardens to the public on Saturday 19th November so that anyone and everyone can come and learn about urban agriculture initiatives in their neighbourhood. 

Make an event of it!! Tell stories! Serve Tea! Have a bbq! Do some fund raising! It is up to you - but we would really love to hear about it so we can promote it here and via our networks! Gardens can be open for a couple of hours or all day depending on what gardeners, farmers or garden groups can manage.

Register for a chance to will win FOUR x ZEA organic cotton t-shirts for your garden team (each tee transforms 10 kilos of food waste into soil!). Share with your network and friends on Facebook.

If you would like to organize an event at your garden or farm please send through a photo and short description of your garden along with the times of your open hours on Saturday 19th of November, as well as your address and contact details. This information will be added to an Urban Agriculture Open Day events page on this website, which will then act as a place for people to plan their experience on the day towards specific interests or locations.
