Cruden Farm Winter Maintenance Tour | 21 July from 9:00AM to 12:00PM @ 60 Cranbourne Road, Langwarrin (entry off Cranhaven Road)
In July, go through and beyond the inner garden, to explore the rest of the property on a special half-day adventure. There is an amazing bank of precious Coral Fern tucked away at Cruden Farm and there are acres of farm land, complete with happy black Angus cows. Learn things about winter pruning, composting, and offer general garden maintenance ideas. To reward you for coming out in the depths of winter, they'll light a camp-fire and share freshly baked damper bread and billy tea. Come on: be brave and spend some time visiting elements of Cruden Farm that people usually never get to see... (BYO scarf and beanie essential!).
