A beautiful calendar from our favourite garden!
Located in Coburg, 2kms north of CERES along the Merri Creek bike path, this two acre plot has been farmed continuously by Chinese and Italian gardeners for over 150 years – Joe’s Market Garden is Melbourne’s last surviving inner city market garden.
In 2003 CERES began farming here under the guidance of Joe Garita, whose father bought the land in the 1945. Previously known as the Merri Creek Market Garden, Joe’s Garden is our second certified organic farm growing organic herbs and vegetables. Irrigation water is taken from the mains supply and a 100,000 litre underground water tank collects rainwater from neighbouring town houses. All produce grown is sold through our CERES Fair Food enterprise and can be found in delivery veggie boxes that you order. We have recently opened a farm gate stall each Saturday morning where you can buy direct from our resident farmer, Emily Connors. To find out more email joesmarketgarden@ceres.org.au
