Mit fogunk csinálni?

You'll first tour the organic mini-farm and focus on its unique features - how the garden and animals are organised and integrated using permaculture thinking. We talk about how chooks, goats and pigs can all be used for various purposes on a self-sufficient property.

You'll also learn great techniques to grow organic vegies, berries and fruits successfully - how to make compost and enrich your soil organically, how to cultivate and weed efficiently, how to time your plantings for maximum productivity, and how to raise plants from seed to advanced seedlings before planting in your garden to make the most of your garden space.

We'll finish by learning how to milk a goat, which is a fun thing to try and also a handy skill if you're considering becoming more self-sufficient one day.

We'll serve a tasty morning tea during the workshop - prepared by Gunilla, who runs Home Grown on Piper cafe in Kyneton, so it'll be of gourmet quality.

You can pick and take home some organic produce, seeds or seedlings for your garden at the end of the workshop. The aim is to inspire you in your own garden, so you'll feel confident to take the seedlings home and grow them successfully yourself!

You receive free coffees at our cafe Home Grown on Piper if you order lunch there on your way home after the workshop, which should top off an enjoyable and inspiring day.
Other things to note
This workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced organic vegie growers. Ideally, decide before what you'd like to learn more about - we aim to tailor the workshop to your areas of interest.

I am a passionate organic grower with 20 years' experience, and I supply vegies, berries and fruits to 30 families in Castlemaine and Kyneton. I combine techniques from both permaculture and traditional organic gardening to produce an amazing variety and quantity of produce in a small space on my mini-farm. I am also an experienced teacher, so I communicate clearly and engagingly. I aim for the workshop to be relaxing and enjoyable, but I also aim to convey plenty of information. I want you to come away inspired with ideas and enthusiasm for your own garden!

Hol leszünk?

The workshop is held at the beautiful Metcalfe Mini-Farm, where we organically grow vegies, berries and fruits to feed thirty local families. It's a family-run farm of just over an acre, with a half-acre vegie garden, berry fields, small orchard, dairy goats, pigs and chooks. This integrated, compact, productive property is the culmination of a dream Rob in particular has worked towards for 21 years, including 10 years at this property.

This farm experience is a great activity for couples or families who appreciate gardening and nature. Our trip started with nice brunch at Gunilla’s cafe (highly recommend the gf peanut butter + dates cookie-yum!). Learned loads of tips from Rob on garden planning, seed raising, tool selection, integrated animal co-living in farm setting. Had our first goat milking experience, finished the milk with a bowl of freshly picked berries under the tree. A perfect and informative experience not to miss!

This is one of the best tours I’ve done! Had an amazing time at Rob’s mini farm and learned so much. Rob had incredible knowledge and very friendly, he was happy to share anything we wanted to know. We left feeling so inspired to start our own mini farm soon. The lunch provided was so delicious, and beyond our expectations. The goat milking was so much fun, and all the goats are adorable. We can’t wait to come back again for a second tour, there is so much more we wanted to learn. Thank you Rob and Gunilla for an incredible afternoon.

We had the pleasure spending an afternoon with Rob, after having lunch at the cafe with Gunilla, which was delectable and worth the wait in what is clearly a very popular cafe. We took our dessert home, which was incredible. Rob grows an extraordinary amount of wholesome food in harmony with practices to preserve his surroundings and the planet and he is a wealth of information and encourages a hands on approach with planting and on the tools. It was every bit worth a wonderful afternoon and we would highly recommend this experience.

Rob is passionate, knowledgeable and really friendly about permaculture and sharing his farming experiences. He went above and beyond to personalise the experience and really show cased his property well. We didn’t read the instructions and wear practical clothes so he supplied us a rain coat and helped us stay pretty clean. If you are interested in organic farming and permaculture this is a great little workshop to learn tips. My partner and I learned lots of little tips to help us with our gardening. Thanks again Rob.

Went to Rob and Gunilla’s today with 8 girlfriends. In Daylesford celebrating my 50th and we usually go to day spas or pubs / wineries but thought I’d organise something a bit different... I didn’t tell them where we were going and in arrival they were a bit shocked I had organised this activity. 2 hours later, after listening to Rob, his passion, the processes he uses in his market garden, snacking on the garden, milking goats and an amazing morning tea (more like lunch) we left and all 9 of us had a fantastic time. Would highly recommend this tour as one for those who want to do something a bit different, outdoors, inspiring, interesting and great fun. Thank Rob!
