PUGF 2019 saw us incubate 22 new farmers across five pop up garlic farms across Melbourne and surrounds. The sites included:
Seaford at the ‘Downs Estate Community Garden’ where Robyn, Rod, Tessa and Kylie are planning to use the course as a pathway to expand and explore the possibility of a market garden onsite.
Silvertine farm at ‘Yarra Valley Eccos’ where Andrew, Tess, Michelle and Bridget have joined forces Bio Dynamic farmers Josh and Tobias for their garlic growing adventure.
Collingwood Children’s Farm boasts a new farmer dream line up featuring Cassie, Ben, Bree and Kaitlyn who are squeezing in their 80m2 of collectively grown garlic behind the pig pens.
‘Flora of Vic’ Keilor where Tom and his dog Panda, are joined by Melanie, Susie, Marion and Kylie with an expansive plot just behind the native grass farm, along the banks of the Maribyrnong river.
‘Marg and Johns Sheep Farm’ Cardinia. Thanks to the generosity hard and work from the ‘Sustain Network’ Brett, Lindy, Ajak and Queyea have been able to take up sponsored course positions at our newest site!
A big cheers to Ryan Decoite our Program Administrator for PUGF 2019 !
