Project Description

Fern, Fremantle

Fremantle Environmental Resource Network (FERN) is a non for profit organisation run by volunteers and an elected board. We acknowledge that FERN is on the traditional lands of the Noongar people and we acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region.

FERN is an community space dedicated to providing affordable bi-weekly vegan food options to the community and offering a community space for people to enjoy the gardens.

No drugs, alcohol or smoking is permitted anywhere on FERN’s premises. We ask that all community members and visitors to FERN respect these rules, which form part our Code of Conduct Policy, ensuring the safety and well being of all community members.
