We'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'll talk about how chooks, goats and pigs can all be used for various purposes on a self-sufficient property, and how a wide variety of organic veggie, berry and fruit crops can be positioned, rotated and grown.

Then we'll get hands-on with seed sowing, planting and soil cultivation. You'll learn great techniques to grow organic veggies, berries and fruits - how to make compost and enrich your soil organically, how to cultivate and weed efficiently, how to time your plantings, and how to raise plants from seed to advanced seedlings before planting 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.

Lunch is provided as part of the workshop, which you can eat in at our cafe Home Grown on Piper cafe in Kyneton, which features healthy, tasty dishes made with organic, ethical produce from our farm and other local producers.

You can pick and purchase 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 seeds or seedlings home and grow them successfully yourself!

I'm a passionate organic grower with 22 years' experience; I supply veggies, berries and fruits to 40 families in Castlemaine and Kyneton. I moved to central Victoria from Melbourne 12 years ago, then 8 years ago I moved from being a secondary English teacher to full-time organic farming.

I combine innovative 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.

As an experienced teacher, I communicate clearly and engagingly; I listen to and understand what you already know, what you're most keen to learn, and your goals for the future.

I aim for the workshop to be relaxing and enjoyable, while also conveying plenty of information. I want you to come away inspired with ideas and enthusiasm for your own garden!

The workshop is held at the beautiful Metcalfe Mini-Farm, where we organically grow veggies, berries and fruits to feed 40 local families. It's a family-run farm of just over an acre, with a half-acre veggie 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 22 years, including 10 years at this property.

Our 8 year old daughter loved it but so did we! Great for gardening newbies as Rob explained his processes really clearly and answered all my questions but also would be great for someone more experienced as he has had his garden established for a long time. Loved feeding the chickens, seeing the pigs, milking the goats, picking some fruit and veg, repotting seedlings and planting seeds, seeing the greenhouses and the great variety of plants. So interesting and great to see what can be achieved in a smaller land area! We also really enjoyed the lunch at the cafè - the food was really lovely, would definitely go back.

We visited Robs farm with another family. Our children were aged 8 to 15. We all absolutely loved it. Rob was very informative, relaxed and encouraging. Highly recommend the farm visit and also visiting the cafe in Kyneton. Food was amazing.

We had a great time walking through the mini farm while learning about farming. All the animals were friendly and Rob did a great job answering any questions we had. The goat's milk and berries were a delicious end to the tour.

Rob has created a beautiful market garden and in more of ten years of growing it has gained lots of knowledge we were very happy to learn from.

Such a great few hours, starting with some great tucker to set your expectations high on what you can achieve. The hands on work shop was essentially everything I’d hoped it would be without fully understanding what I wanted. Our small group has come away from today with some small, medium and big groups plans! Thank you Rob and Gunilla! We look forward to sharing pics of our produce and further picking your brains for knowledge! Laura, Elise and Carl.

This experience was amazing for my husband and I! We are new to growing edibles and Rob catered the experience to suit our needs. He was very generous with his knowledge and didn’t hesitate to share tips he had. We brought our pooch with us and he got to meet the goats, chickens and pigs as well. We highly recommend this for anyone of any skill level.
