Share your Love for Local this Valentineʼs Day Inviting backyard and balcony growers to come together for a massive locally grown and foraged feast. On Sunday February 14 The Sustainable Living Festival will hold the biggest Great Local Lunch yet. Take a seat in the pumping heart of Melbourne, on the banks of the Yarra, and break bread to show your love for local.
The Great Local Lunch will bring together 200 local farmers, backyard growers and Melbourne foodies, to inspire a new generation of growers.
Host Costa Georgiadis, from ABC’s Gardening Australia, will unearth gardening, cooking, recipe and sustainability tidbits.
“Gathering around a table and engaging in conversation, is a simple solution to sustainable living. The Great Local Lunch is about connecting with each other and the source of our food.” Costa said.
The planter boxes outside the Town Hall on Swanston Street and at Gordon Reserve near Parliament will be converted into veggie patches to coincide with The Great Local Lunch. The Lord Mayor of Melbourne and President of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, Robert Doyle said the Foundation is pleased to support The Great Local Lunch.
“I hope it will inspire city dwellers to cultivate their own veggies at home.” The Lord Mayor said.
