Participate in food preparation or garden-focused workshops

We hold a range of workshops at REAL and The Place of Wonder throughout the year. Our workshops are small group-focused, hands-on, practical, informative and supportive – a great place to pick up a new skill or two. Whether you’re interested in fresh cheese making, sourdough for beginners, fermentation or composting, there will be a workshop for you!

The food preparation workshops are held in a dedicated space at REAL and edible gardening workshops are held at The Place of Wonder edible habitat garden.



About the workshops

Workshops are generally 2 hours in duration, and all materials and ingredients are supplied. You’ll complete the workshop with lots of take-home recipes and hints. Bookings are essential and payments are to be made at the time of booking.

Introducing: Your Garden, The Pharmacy

A Workshop with Naturopath Sharon Holland and Horticulturalist Kylie Treble

We explore how several easy-to-source garden plants and weeds can help you with everyday health challenges.

Kylie will introduce the plant, discuss its features and how to best grow or source it. Sharon will then walk you through the process for making tea, oils, poultice and more from the plant, and how to use such health products.

Take home what you make, plus enjoy lots of notes and hints around wellbeing. Join us for an inspiring session and to view your garden a little differently!

Bookings are essential so get in quick.

Start: 10am – 12pm
Price: $65

At both REAL and The Place of Wonder, we encourage you to take action

Your experience with us so far may have been a dine-in meal, a workshop, or you may have only just seen our takeaway menu.

But what we love to do is re-examine how we can have a better impact on our community – whether it be through our sourcing practices, our waste reduction or even how we repurpose all parts of our food. We’re passionate about pushing aside assumptions and creating a better future.

So, I ask you this – what kind of future do you want to create?

Push aside your assumptions, it’s time for us to work together and change the story.
