with My Smart Garden and Slow Food Melbourne, is exploring and celebrating
urban agricultural biodiversity in Hobsons Bay.
Council is keen to gain a better understanding of the location and type of productive gardens and spaces in Hobsons Bay and get an insight into how our local growers, cooks, botanists, and anyone else interested in any aspect of local food would like to connect.
The information collated will help Council develop further activities for the community, such as cooking and preserving workshops, community networking events, swap and share events, plant identification fact sheets and more. You could have a great idea to share that we haven’t thought of yet!
Get involved by:
- Plot My Produce - using the map in the 'Plot My Produce' tab, plot local produce to share what’s already out there.
- Online Survey - complete the short online survey to help us understand what skills and knowledge exist in our community and how we can support our local growers, growers-to-be, accomplished cooks, budding chefs, food lovers and nature lovers alike.
- Learn from others - is there a fruit or nut tree in your neighbourhood that you’ve always wondered about? Take a photo, post it on the 'What's That Tree?' tab and have others in the community help by sharing their knowledge.
We invite you to take part in these activities and share your contribution by midnight, 17 July 2020.
