Traditional Owners Acknowledgement.
Eden Farm acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land of Greater Shepparton: the Yorta Yorta Nation, whose clans include the Bangerang, Kailtheban, Wollithiga, Moira, Ulupna, Kwat Kwat, Yalaba Yalaba and Ngurai-illiam-wurrung people.
We pay respect to their Tribal Elders, we celebrate their continuing culture, and we acknowledge the memory of their ancestors.
We at Eden Farm are committed to serving the community by offering expertise and our working farm to impact lives for good. We provide engagement opportunities and events that support marginalised groups (Cultural and Linguistically Diverse Peoples, First Nations Peoples and People with Disabilities).
We seek to inspire and benefit the community long term by taking a forward thinking, relationship building approach in celebrating ability, cultural diversity, collaboration and social inclusion.
We use our vibrant space to help people gain new skills, increase confidence, find purpose, look after their health and generate business for themselves in order to reach goals and live life to the full.

Not for profit events, capacity building and Art/craft sales
We run a number of not-for-profit events including workshops, exhibitions and festivals for people with disabilities as well as those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (and for the wider community to attend). These events are structured to allow artists, stallholders and those running workshops to keep all profits in order to have community access, get brand exposure, gain confidence, find purpose and build business and work skills. We sell art and craft items made by people with disabilities through our website, with all profits going back to the artist/creator.
