Explore Perth's original Urban Orchard
To mark the 10th anniversary of the commencement of the Urban Orchard revitalisation project tour participants will get to explore this unique garden and learn about:
- The concept for the organic garden and how it was designed given some very challenging parameters
- The 30 + mature fruit trees in the space and how they are cared for
- The interesting veggie and herbs growing in the under story
- And perhaps leave with some produce for home!
The Urban Orchard boasts 300 sqm of garden beds with mature fruit trees and food plants that produce a harvest all year for the community to share. The space attracts 4.5 million visitors a year and has won multiple awards.
The tour will be led by Perth City Farm's Emma Slavin, a Horticulturalist and Educator who cares for the space with a team of volunteers from City Farm. This tour is free, but please secure your place by booking a ticket through the ticket link. Places are limited. Tickets from https://events.humanitix.com.au/perth-urban-orchard-tour
