STAWELL - The Open Kitchen Garden Weekend conducted by the Stawell Urban Landcare Group has been hailed a success by organisers.
Organiser Bronwyn Bant said it is estimated about 65 people took part in the event by taking in the food producing gardens and workshops.
"We were really pleased that so many people came out and supported the event," Ms Bant said.
Ms Bant said the day is designed to provide others with inspiration and ideas for creating food producing gardens at home.
"We're incredibly thankful to all of the gardeners and workshops hosts who generously gave up their time to share their knowledge and allow us to see their gardens," Ms Bant said.
This is the second time Stawell Urban Landcare has hosted the Open Kitchen Garden Day.
"After receiving such positive feedback from our first Open Kitchen Garden Day in March, we were keen to keep the momentum going by hosting the event again before summer," Ms Bant said.
"Four food producing gardens in Stawell and Pomonal were open to the public and three workshops were held on backyard bee keeping, making sourdough bread and growing olives. Both the Stawell and Ararat Community Gardens also took part in the day."
Ms Bant said the Stawell Urban Landcare Group was keen to expand the event in the future and are currently seeking funding to continue the event.
