Howdy Folks,

I'm raising money for scholarship camper places at the next Girls Rock! Melbourne camp (a camp that empowers girls, trans, and gnc youth through music) in September. You can donate to my fundraiser page and there are some ace perks such as t-shirts, hoodies, stickers etc

There is a really ace video to see what we get up to at camp on the link to my fundraiser page below.

Thanks in advance.

MECCARG - Merri Murnong


This Saturday, June 2rd 1-3pm, at the MECCARG - Merri Murnong Patch

This months activity focus is murnong and lilies.

This Saturday we will plant some into the patch but we will be mainly potting up into styrofoam boxes for fostering.  
This is to fatten up Murnongs (yam daisies), bulbines lilies, blue grass lilies and milkmaids, which all are edible tuberous species we eat in November after roasting them in earth ovens. 

They are all harvested the day before the celebration of the'10th Murnong Gathering' on 11th November 2018. 
The day we dig them up is an amazing insight into the secrets of these fascinating plants and being involved develops a strong connection to the celebration the following day. Please come along this weekend to help and put the Celebration on the 11th November into your calendar

All you require is some curiosity about these plants and readiness to get your hands dirty (gloves provided).
Look forward to seeing you and having cuppa afterward.
Hope to see you there!

Do you use the pedestrian/bike bridge over the Merri Creek between Bell St and Connolly Ave, Coburg? (Melways  18A12).

Beware of motorbikes using this bridge illegally at high speed. This is very dangerous. An accident on the bridge could be catastrophic.

Fawkner police have this problem on their watch list. Please notify them on 9355 6000 if you to can supply exact times, registration numbers or a photo.

Thank you for helping.

Community Supported Agriculture


Community Supported Agriculture.

The Taggart’s team is excited to announce the launch of our C.S.A.  

For those of you unfamiliar with Community Supported Agriculture you are basically buying a share in the produce for the year. By doing so gives us the security to continue doing what we love, producing premium quality higher welfare pork. By freeing up time we would spend on marketing and sales, we can put more time into ensuring we raise the healthiest and happiest pigs. It also allows you to continue buying you meat guilt free and gives you a greater connection to where your meat comes from. You even receive a small discount compared to buying our boxes.

There will be 3 options available to best suit your needs and budget. Subscriptions can be paid upfront or on a monthly basis.  Each pack option will receive all the cuts over the course of a year in varying quantities dependent on pack chosen. 

Packs have a selection of the following; roasts/belly/chops/ribs/cutlets/mince and diced meat. C.S.A. members will also have first chance at Christmas hams and any other special cuts throughout the year. Members will also be invited to our annual Taggart's Family spit roast.

Pack Size
Bi-Monthly Payment
Up Front Payment

The first season of C.S.A. shares will be available from August with initial payments to be made in July. If you would like to become a member please respond to the below email address with your preferred share option and drop off location.

Drop-offs will be made every two months in two locations. Drop-offs will be North Coburg and Taggerty.

Further details on payment etc will be forwarded in an email once we have finalised this year's membership.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Kind Regards,

Taggart’s Paddock Pork.
