Joe's Market Garden at CERES in Coburg invites lovers of nature, poetry and spoken word to come along to a morning open mic. This open mic event welcomes new and emerging poets, established and published poets, read your own words or other poets work.

Curious and supportive audience members most welcome. Joe's Market Garden is a dynamic community space, the poetry gig has a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Be prepared to go with the flow, be outdoors in the veggie patch, relax and exhale. Joe's cafe has great tasting coffee and fresh pastries for purchase - a perfect poets breakfast.

This open mic is outdoors and we are in Melbourne, remember to take care of your fragile human vessel - we suggest you bring a hat and sunnies, or a umbrella, gumboots, sandals, ...etc. (we have a market shelter)

Joe's Market Garden is located in Coburg, 2kms north of CERES along the Merri Creek bike path, this two acre plot has been farmed continuously by Chinese and Italian gardeners for over 150 years – Joe’s Market Garden is Melbourne’s last surviving inner city market garden.'
