Welcome to our workshops.

Mt Alexander Fruit Gardens has been set up as a working demonstration of how a family can grow their own year's supply of fruit, and grow their own fruit trees as well. 

Our workshop series covers all the main areas, and together consist of a complete fruit-growing course. Click on the individual workshops below for full details.

Grow Great Fruit Program

We grow organically, and teach organic growing principles and methods. We’re aware of the changing climate, so the farming methods we use help to create solutions, not add to the problem. We've poured years of experience into our farm-tested Grow Great Fruit program after talking to hundreds of home growers, and figuring out what you need most...information, security, and someone you can trust to help you solve your problems.
