There will be no EmPOWering Community drinks this Sunday. Instead we are heading down to Forty K Farm for their open day. If you are interested in carpooling, please email Katerina: firstname.lastname@example.org
The ‘Forty K Farm‘ is a 30 acre property about 40 kms west of Melbourne’s CBD. It has 5 acres planted out with established apple, pear, almond and olive trees. There’s also 40 chooks who provide good eggs each week, and bees. It has great potential for vegetables, livestock and more.
The vision for the farm includes, in time, operating on a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model to grow produce that may serve some of the needs of the various organic food coops operating in the west of Melbourne (more). The farm is a opportunity for many groups and individuals to take a step closer to the source of our food and reconnect with the systems that sustain us.
