Down’s Estate Community Project, sometimes known as Down’s Community Farm or simply as “Down’s”, is a flourishing community hub bordering the scenic wetlands, on Old Wells Rd, Seaford. It is situated on traditional lands of the Bunurong and Boon Wurrung people.
The "Down's Estate" is the former farm of world-renowned whip and saddlemaker Harry Down. The land is now owned by Frankston City Council who have licensed our community group to use the land for community activities.
The project is co-created by passionate, hardworking and dedicated community members. Together we are creating a free, welcoming, natural and sustainable place for people to connect with each other, the natural environment and our food.
We grow food in ways that are kind to the earth and our health, host a range of community activities, workshops and events and share our knowledge and culture. This unique space with nourishing gardens and orchards, wide-open grasslands fringed by native vegetation reaching into wetlands and huge sky with soaring birdlife will not fail to lift your spirit.
We welcome you to come along and join us. If you want to get involved or share your ideas, you can like and follow our Facebook page or Instagram, and visit us onsite at Old Wells Rd, Seaford, Victoria. We appreciate your support and ideas which help us to keep this amazing project exciting and connected.
