Food Forest

CERES Farm has been working on transforming disused paddocks into a vibrant Food Forest. The Food Forest is located adjacent to the Honey Lane Market Garden and was established in 2011. Much labour intensive work has been completed by staff, volunteers and students to create the basis for our food forest. Terraced slopes were created, a system of chicken runs for rotational use were established, basic fencing and irrigation were installed as well as the planting of dozens of fruit and nut trees and indigenous plants and grasses. And a gorgeous sign was created by students from a local primary school. Since then, a group of committed and passionate community members have come together to form the Food Forest Volunteer Group (FFG). Working together with the CERES Farm team, the FFG will be involved in the ongoing maintenance and future development of the Food Forest. Future designs for this space will include creating educational displays and an outdoor teaching space as well as better accessibility for members of the community. Community working bees and site tours of the Food Forest are also planned. So watch this space!
