Slow Foods – Talking Gardens Tour

Slow Foods invites you to visit four outstanding gardens that produce amazing food for members of local communities.

Suburban Food Forest
In a suburban back yard in East Maitland is a food forest that produces the most prolific bounty. A saunter through this garden will reveal a plethora of herbs, fruit and vegetables – including native foods, exotics and staples.

Biodiversity in Action
In Oakhampton a once decimated ex-mining site now boasts a small market garden, a rainforest and an orchard. From completely bare to barely recognisable, see what one man’s efforts have achieved.

Community Garden
Mother Moira’s community garden is proof that food was meant to be shared. Providing produce for the parish community kitchen, this garden shows how food sources can be integrated into a manicured garden.

School Gardens
It is difficult to appreciate what a Stephanie Alexander School Kitchen Garden means until you see it in action. Visit the Telarah Public School garden and learn how this small garden ripples through so many facets of the children’s lives.
