DESCRIPTION

My name is Fabian Capomolla, some refer to me as the Hungry Gardener. My passion is Food and Gardens. I used to be one half of the Little Veggie Patch Co. 

Having Italian heritage, my dream has always to go and live in Italy for a year. In 2015, I made that dream come true, and my family and I movedto Lucca, Italy. It was there where I worked on community garden, and learnt what it means to “Grow Italian”.

I have since returned to Australia, and am now setting up the Kitchen Garden at The Farm Yarra Valley.  

The Farm Yarra Valley is an event space dedicated to showcasing quality Yarra valley produce. Wine, beer, cheese and fresh vegetables are produced on site.

During the workshop, I will discuss my time in Italy, and some of the tips I picked up while there. I will also run over the basics of setting up your veggie patch, to hopefully arm you with the information require to be setting up your very own veggie patch.
