The Flemington Food Forest was created in 2013 as a community edible garden which looks to the natural structure of a forest to gain high yields with minimum maintenance and human inputs. We have created the Flemington Food Forest primarily as a living playground for local children and their families to explore their natural world and gain basic knowledge about growing fresh, local and healthy food.

FSNLC offers both accredited and pre-accredited English classes for speakers of other languages.

Accredited courses are offered full time. They follow the EAL Frameworks curriculum. Students from absolute beginner level (22259VIC Course in EAL) right up to 22256VIC Certificate IV in EAL (Access) can work towards their nationally recognised certificate in English as an additional language.
