The green-thumbed volunteers at the Warrane Mornington Community Garden have been working hard through the summer months preparing for the return of its annual Harvest Festival on 23 March.

Members of the community are invited to visit the garden at 18 Heemskirk Street in Warrane between 9:30am to 12:30pm and learn from local experts on a range of topics including beekeeping, cooking, weeding and much more.

Garden coordinator Katie Kristensen said funds raised from the event would go towards the development of a new sustainable on-site shelter which would be available to volunteers and members of the public.

Our garden team are proud of our efforts in transforming this space and we are so excited to once again share this with the community at our family friendly harvest festival,” she said.

“This event is a great opportunity for people to enjoy a democracy sausage and a coffee after casting their vote.

“It also provides a chance to meet, and learn from, many of the talented individuals in the neighbourhood.

“We are so grateful to have many passionate stall holders who will create a vibrant display of plants, produce, children’s activities, live music and engaging workshops.

“Our harvest headwear competition will return this year.

“Attendees are encouraged to don their most creative home-made headpiece which will be judged on sustainability, creativity and fabulosity with prizes for an overall winner, junior winner and the most outrageous entry.”
