Organic Vegie/Fruit growers Disc Group – Timbarra Farm – Don Valley

October 18, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

You are invited to attend the next organic vegie/fruit growers discussion group at Timbarra Farm.
Helen and Chris Brock run Timbarra Farm after purchasing it in 2010. Perched on the side of a hill amid soaring mountain ash in the Don Valley, near Healesville their 20ha farm is at the end of a 1km winding road through tree ferns and forest.
Their aim for self sufficiency soon grew into a market garden producing a wide range of vegetables which are grown for the chefs they service. They also grow a range of fruits and berries.

In addition to their vegetables and fruit, they also grow pasture raised meat chickens (non-organic) which are supplied to local chefs.

This will be a really interesting afternoon and all welcome!
