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.
Vegan buffet dinner by donation nights are held on Monday and Wednesday nights, with volunteers welcome from 2pm onwards to help with dinner preparation at FERN. Dinner is usually ready by around 6pm and there are often impromptu music jams on a Monday night. FERN’s main source of revenue is via donation income from these bi-weekly dinners so we thank the community for supporting us in keeping this initiative going.
Gardening busy bees are also held on Tuesday mornings at FERN. Movie nights are held monthly and as space is limited please book in early if you would like to attend.
FERN would like to thank the Animal Justice Party for the lease of a space at FERN for many years, the income from this has been vital in terms of meeting operational expenses. Also we would like to thank Second Bite and Oz Harvest, without their food donations we could not provide vegan dinners by donation to the community.
Feel free to come visit FERN, enjoy the space and get to know community members. FERN attracts a variety of people for different reasons. If it feels right for you, please consider joining FERN as a member. For more information on types of membership and the process please see the membership page.
