Barongarook Landcare Group (BLG)



The Otway region is gearing up to showcase everything locally grown and sown. Some ready to eat and the rest harvested to take home and add a culinary spin.

Taste and purchase local produce; talk to and learn from local growers and makers. Develop growing and making talents by taking part in demonstrations and workshops around the theme of small holding skills like building soil and compost, bee keeping, poultry management, regenerative farming, the lifecycle of wool, native bush foods, truffle sniffer dog trials, shearing and creative kids food and fibre activities.
