The Hidden OrchardThe Hidden Orchard - see them on the Ballarat Permaculture stand

The Hidden Orchard harvests fruit from backyards or public areas and shares it amongst the site owners, pickers and local charities. The charities distribute the fruit free to people within the community, or use it in meal programs.

The Hidden Orchard is a project of Ballarat Permaculture Guild. We thank our friends at Growing Abundance (Castlemaine) for inspiration and support.
