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.
I am the garden presenter on Realestate.com.au Lifestyle channel. And have a new book out called "The Hungry Gardener - Growing Food the Italian Way"
During the workshop / private lesson, I will help you become a better gardener, shareing all my tips and tricks.
The lesson can be run in you own space, or alternatively at The Farm Yarra Valley.
Covered everything from design, preparation, planting out and maintaining a veggie garden. Our friendly host, Fabian, was willing to share his knowledge and experiences, answering any questions, and kept us all entertained throughout the day. It was good value for money, in an ideal setting, Fabian was really exceptional and the lunch provided was lovely. I would thoroughly recommend
What a great day. Fab was awsome, we got loads of information to use in our garden. The added bonus was the awsome lunch. Would recomend it to anyone. 5 star :)
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!
