Backyard Harvest Festival is being held in May 2019

The Backyard Harvest Festival is a celebration of home food growing traditions, and gives residents the opportunity to learn from passionate and knowledgeable local food experts from a diversity of cultures. The festival involved opening home food gardens for tours and workshops, to help build a strong sense of community around homegrown and homemade food.

To enable festival goers to experience Darebin’s amazing home food gardens in a different season, the next festival will be held in autumn 2019 instead of in spring / November 2018. Tickets available from February/March 2019.

You can still get your spring food gardening inspiration at these Open Gardens Victoria and 3000acres events happening in Darebin:
