As part of the Pop-Up Garlic Farmer project, run by Farmer Incubator (https://farmerincubator.org/pop-up-garlic-farmers/)  I teamed up with a group of like-minded peeps to try “being a garlic farmer” on a small scale. This meant, over the course of the year, cultivating a small patch of land,  planting, growing, harvesting and marketing a crop of garlic.

In our group’s case, our site was on a patch of land in Ballan, north-west of Melbourne, near to Ballarat leant to us by a friendly farm-owner with a paddock to spare.

This blog is a record of our progress.
