Broome Harvest, September 2019

Broome Harvest is an annual celebration of local food offered through a plethora of dishes made from local ingredients. Run by Incredible Edible Broome and hosted by Matsos brewery, the lunchtime feast is abuzz, feeding up to 200 people. The event is a show of community generosity and good spirit with donations and volunteers making it all possible for the community to enjoy at an affordable price. It is held during the Shinju Matsuri festival, a perfect time to harvest a dry season’s crop and celebrate local produce, local producers and artisans of the food industry. A bustling family friendly event relaxing under the mango trees with music and a diversity of dishes to suit all ages and tastebuds.

Broome North Community Garden regular working bee, ongoing

The Broome North Community Garden packs a punch. A seemingly small space created in 2016 on the corner of Tanami Drive and Magabala Road, a wide range of fruits, vegetables and herbs as well as seedlings grow in this productive patch. We are there every week (and in between) on Wednesday between 4-6pm. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come down, have a look, lend a hand or just say hi.

CIRCLE verge garden regular working bee, ongoing

From a strip of under appreciated grass and weeds, the CIRCLE verge garden on the corner of Frederick and Welds Streets was repurposed for the greater good of the community in the wet season of 2018/2019. We are there every Thursday 4-6pm harvesting, planting, weeding and preparing the garden beds. This productive space has produced lots of wonderful crops in just a year of operation, including snake beans, eggplants, watermelons, tomatoes, sunflowers, green manures and cabbage.

Movie Screenings with Q&A – A New Economy, December 2018

In December 2018 we partnered with Notre Dame University and Environs Kimberley to offer a free screening of the film “A New Economy”.

We love getting together to watch and discuss sustainability themed documentaries and aim to organise several each year. All people are welcome and the aim is to create an inclusive and friendly environment, with the opportunity to build relationships with others and discuss the movie and other relevant topics afterwards.

Incredible Edible Garden Bike Tour, July 2018

Garden tours are popular events. We all love to see what someone else is doing in their patch of pindan, so in July 2018 we combined two fun things, edible gardens and cycling! We visited three gardens in the Broome North area, as well as the community garden. It was amazing to see the diversity of plants growing, from green manures and fruit trees to beautifully designed small spaces utilising chickens and mealworms.

Groovin in the Garden with Charlie Mcgee, June 2018

Incredible Edible Broome presented Groovin’ in the Garden with Charlie Mcgee for some family friendly fun of the electro, funk, ukelele, permaculture variety. It was beautiful out under the mango tree. The crowd and Charlie brought the place alive! The soups, cakes and sourdough were also a hit.

Woods Drive Project February 2017 (joint project with SKIPA – Society for Kimberley Indigenous Plants and Animals)

In partnership with SKIPA, we transformed a stretch of neglected parkland into an edible avenue using native plants over the 2017 Wet Season. Over three working bees, donations of trees from SKIPA and mulch from the Shire and Ask Alex, the project was completed in 2017. The strip of parkway was further enhanced through a street art youth engagement project bringing the adjacent fenceline alive with vibrant locally themed art.
