Harvest festival by Akira

This festival was in North Melbourne’s Language and Learning centre which was introduced just last year. The festival was free and people had a lot of fun whilst there. There was lots of food to try as well as making your own smoothies by bike.

The Language and Learning centre is for newly arrived migrants and people to help them with their English skills and IT, among other things. The place is welcoming and they do have a prayer mat.

Well I’ve already had my smoothie for the day so no Bike and blend for me. Instead there was injera, dumplings, sri lankan curry, rice and much more. This event was held during Cultural diversity week. All the foods were free, however many people donated to cover the costs of these foods.

Cultural Diversity week is a week in Melbourne where all cultures come together over food, fun and community.

The Chinese Dance group did a really stellar dance and they were in harmony.

All the foods were homemade and made by local not for profit migrant charities. There was Ethiopean coffee being made but seeing as it was too late it was not such a good idea.

Many thanks to North Melbourne Learning and Language centre for having us.
