March Field Day - Blue Boat Farm Gate
Time & Location
About the Event
Melissa Fogarty and her family nurture an amazing urban farm on half an acre at Medowie including fruit trees, chickens, bees and vegetables. They've been using permaculture principles and planting with the moon for the last five years, regularly selling their produce at Maitland's Earth Markets.
After barely surviving the drought 12 months ago, the pandemic necessitated a pivot for the family to continue safely selling their food. With an immunocompromised person in the home, Melissa implemented a system of pre-ordering and socially distanced pick ups from the farm gate.
Join us on Saturday 27 March for a tour of this amazing garden and find out why it's called Blue Boat Farm Gate!
