A food-growers’ co-op and permaculture education centre promoting locally-grown produce, emphasizing storage and preservation techniques. OVHH is located in a 2-acre walled garden which is within a 220 acre park which attracts around 30,000 visitors each year. The project is seeking funding to renovate one section of the Victorian greenhouse, in exchange for which, use of the garden and greenhouse, together with office and storeroom is provided in-kind. OVHH made a start in January 2009 and cultivated one quadrant of the walled garden and planted several fruit trees against the surrounding 15’ high brick walls. They also grew a range of vegetables, and planted 2 kiwi climbers in the updated section of the greenhouse.
