My name is Fabian Capomolla, some refer to me as the Hungry Gardener. My passion is Food and Gardens. I used to be one half of the Little Veggie Patch Co.
Having Italian heritage, my dream has always to go and live in Italy for a year. In 2015, I made that dream come true, and my family and I moved to Lucca, Italy. It was there where I worked on community garden, and learnt what it means to “Grow Italian”.
I have since returned to Australia, and am now setting up the Kitchen Garden at The Farm Yarra Valley.
The Farm Yarra Valley is an event space dedicated to showcasing quality Yarra valley produce. Wine, beer, cheese and fresh vegetables are produced on site.
During the workshop, I will discuss my time in Italy, and some of the tips I picked up while there. I will also run over the basics of setting up your veggie patch, to hopefully arm you with the information require to be setting up your very own veggie patch.
What a great day! Learning about growing veggies in a relaxed and beautiful setting. Fabian is a wealth of knowledge and happily answered all our questions. This was followed by a fantastic lunch - all in all a perfect way to spend your Sunday. Thanks Fabian!
What a Fabulous day with the Hungry Gardner. Fabian was a wealth of knowledge and was so engaging. We learnt so much about starting up a veggie patch and can't wait to get started. Our workshop ended with a beautiful lunch with beautiful surrounds. We would highly recommend this workshop to anyone with limited knowledge like myself or for those who want to improve their veggie gardens. Thanks so much for a great day Fab!!
Fantastic experience and thoroughly enjoyed the morning. Some great insight into all aspects of gardening, some great tips and plenty of light bulb moments. Fab was a great host, answered all our questions and shared some very insightful information. The lunch provided by the kitchen at the farm was nothing short of sensational. A beautiful setting out under the trees overlooking the property, such a treat. Do yourself, partner and friends a favour and spend a morning learning everything gardening with Fab out in the picturesque Yarra Valley.
