Farming in the Plenty Valley

The historical photographic exhibition: Farming in the Plenty Valley: an historical view" has moved to Ivanhoe Library.

This photographic display depicts some of the early farming practices that were carried out within the Plenty Valley. Produce from the Plenty Valley supported the development of early Melbourne and was once considered Melbourne’s food bowl.

The display provides an opportunity to reflect on the early methods used in agriculture and consider the advances made.

This display was created by the Whittlesea Historical Society in order to recognise and celebrate the 150th year of the Whittlesea Agricultural Show held in 2009.

Visit Ivanhoe Library, - the display is open every day during library opening hours until 23 January. It will then go to Watsonia Library.
