Common Spaces, Pocket City Farms and Acre Eatery are celebrating one year of farm-to-table goodness from Wednesday, June 21 through Sunday, June 25 with a whole lotta freebies. That means free talks, workshops, art, live music, tours and, of course, food.

Wednesday, June 21 will welcome a community art installation titled Assembling Life, a collaborative project made of wild grasses and flowers that participants will contribute to while learning traditional weaving methods. Friday evening is a night of live music with tunes on the terrace and a separate 'kids disco' with toasties, snacks and supervision provided — so parents can let their hair down too.

Saturday, June 24 brings a full day of free workshops, from DIY seed balls and still life drawing classes to compost, worm farm and native bee-keeping lessons. Tours, more live music, yoga ($15 per session) and a local's dinner at Acre ($30) are all on offer as well, along with free birthday cake from 2.30pm.

While most events won't cost a thing, booking is essential for a good few of them. For a full list of happenings, check out the Camperdown Commons events page.
