What we do at the Market Garden
At the Market Garden we grow vegetables in the most sustainable way we know, with minimal inputs and that includes water, manure and fertiliser.
Other things we do at the garden
We run an internship program. We take on two interns every year around November and pay for your tuition at the Gordon Tafe to do the Cert III in Horticulture, BD training and membership. In exchange we ask that you work part time at the Garden.
- We run a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) scheme
- We run a Work for the Dole program – many participants have gone on to find work or further education
- The produce grown is sold through the shop in Labuan Sq. Norlane or at Torquay Farmers Market
We are happy to run tours of the garden and explain what we do.
