Edendale is a community farm in the Nillumbik Shire's Eltham township. It provides information and education on supporting sustainable living practices for the whole community.
Visitors can pat a guinea pig and feed chickens or turkeys. Or see goats, sheep, geese and a Jersey cow called Taffy.
Edendale is home to a child-friendly spiral garden or wander through the sustainably-grown vegetable gardens and fruit orchard to get ideas on what you can do in your own garden.
There are also artworks scattered throughout the farm including the Fences Act, a wonderful front fence, the Eltham Copper Butterfly Mural made from recyclable material, a platypus mural, mosaic eggs and bee stepping stones.
Opening hours are 9.30am - 4.30pm daily, except Christmas Day, Extreme and Code Red fire danger days.
Admission by gold coin donation to any of the donation boxes which can be found around the site.
Bring a rubbish-free lunch and enjoy the outdoor spaces or visit Café Eden for something tasty.
