The Veggie Empire Urban Farm Tours

The Veggie Empire, a farming duo living with disability, are excited to celebrate International Day of People with Disability & Urban Agriculture Month by hosting two guided urban farm tours.

The duo and the co-operative farming team they are a part of, ‘Caring Farms Co-op,’ have been building their urban farm for ten years. Together they have created a social enterprise that includes a market garden, food plant nursery, revegetation project and worm farming operation. All nestled in the suburb of St Helena!

Fresh off featuring on Gardening Australia, the duo are ready to showcase their hard work to their community. The tours will involve a guided walk around the farm, nursery, worm farms and revegetation areas, a talk on how they’ve got to where they have and an explanation of the model they have used to get there.

Following the tours catering will be provided.

Seedlings & Produce will be available for purchase 🙂

These tours were proudly supported by Nillumbik Shire
