As an accredited social enterprise, we believe it's important to share what we learn. We aim to share practical skills and knowledge about growing, harvesting and preparing food with people of all ages.


Together we can move closer to improving our environment. 



"Great presentation and information.
Cultivating Community has been really easy to work with and they have tailored a session to our particular community needs"


We can inspire your workforce to think about all food growing related matters as well as help a variety of different age groups, cultural groups, and community groups to embrace the benefits of food and gardening.  


From the plough to the plate, we know it,  we love it, and we share it. We go beyond that and can help with all ideas about composting, food waste and the circular economy. 

We offer a variety of workshops online or covid restrictions permitting directly at your private office, community group, neighbourhood house, council , school, or private event. 

Let us inform and inspire your teams and people.

If you commission our team you know that any surplus created is reinvested back into our organisation to help our communities across the Public Housing of Melbourne. 

To discuss your potential theme, event and details email our Workshop Officer Simone
