This event is based in Melbourne’s inner west* and is free. Our success depends on the generosity and participation of POW members and volunteers in our wider community. We thank you all in advance!
If other permaculture or gardening groups are interested in holding similar events, we’d be more than happy to share our learnings. You can get in touch via email.
COVID-Safe guidelines will apply to limit the size of cycling groups, and to ensure contact-less exchanges.
Excess seeds will be dispersed to local seed libraries/exchanges and non-profit organisations.
*MELBOURNE’S INNER WEST includes suburbs located in the following council areas: Maribyrnong, Hobsons Bay, Moonee Valley, Brimbank and Wyndham.
