New Urban Farm
Acre, the new urban farm with eateries and more, has just opened at the Burwood Brickworks site on Middleborough Road, Burwood East. This exciting and unique project is a huge food garden hub with various places to eat the produce, enjoy the view over a drink or coffee and cake, learn about sustainable food production and cooking, engage with the community and generally have a good time. There are events spaces for weddings or small functions and lots of community workshops are in the planning. It’s still early days and the food garden is in its early growth phase but the cafe, bar and restaurants are open and there is also take-away food, perfect for summer picnics. The cafe and cake counter are open 7 days a week and the Eatery & Bar is open Wednesday to Sunday. Check opening and closing times at the Melbourne Acre website.
