What else you should know?
Your health and well-being is paramount to us. Due to covid-19 restrictions we will only allow 8 people per class.

The Edible Forest is located on the Yarra Valley Estate property, one hour from Melbourne. Public transport is limited to the venue, so we suggest you drive.

Be guided through the Edible Forest by one of the team members at Yarra Valley Estate, who lovingly created the space, and learn the health benefits and reasons why individual plants were selected as you meander through the six different areas including tea, wetlands, bush tucker, sensory, berry & woodlands.

Our Edible Forest is nothing like you would have experienced before – over 850 plants that are grown either for edible or medicinal purposes are planted within a one-acre forest garden that supplies edible produce every day of the year.

While you are in the area:
Here are a few other places Louise Ward recommends you visit while you are in the area:
