Working Bees at KABUU

Saturday 7 September, 1pm to 5pm
Research, near Eltham College

KABUU is a start-up enterprise based in Banyule and Nillumbik, Victoria. They currently run a micro-nursery and grow vegetables, herbs, baby salads and microgreens, specialising in growing seedlings using the Nature’s BoxPress method. Their goal is to transform currently vacant and underutilised urban spaces into thriving food producing systems; supplying quality fresh food to local communities.

KABUU’s vision is a vibrant sustainable environment where everyone has access to healthy and affordable fresh food grown within walking distance and their mission is to create an urban food system providing hyperlocal and affordable fresh food to all; while leaving the smallest possible ecological footprint.

Many of you will know KABUU’s founder Richard Lee from the Eltham Farmer’s Market. His produce is amazing, usually having been picked that morning and having travelled only a few km down the hill from Research.

Richard is always grateful for help around his urban farm so we’re proposing a couple of working bees in the coming months, to which the NERP community is warmly welcomed. Richard will give a tour of the farm and tell the story behind KABUU.

Depending on the number of people attending, activities may include:
— moving soil to make new beds
— constructing compost bays
— making a poly tunnel
— making a greenhouse
— putting up a wind break
— an introduction to seeding and planting

The greater the interest, the more ambitious the activities can be.

If you’d like to come along to one or both of the sessions,
you can register your interest via trybooking.
