Welcome to our City Farm hub. Keep up to date on the all dirt from City Farm, upcoming news, and volunteer opportunities here!
We’re busily developing plans for a new City Farm which we hope will be a hub for food production and sustainable living in the heart of Sydney. The City Farm could feature demonstration gardens, space for community art projects and food outlets selling produce complimented by flourishing fruit and vegetables in an innovative farm space. Watch this space as we’ll continue to share milestones with you throughout next year as well as opportunities to have a say in activities and produce.
The Farm itself will take some time to set up, but to give you a taste of what’s to come we created a Summer Garden in Sydney Park, St Peters over March 2013. The Garden was full of crops and produce you wouldn’t normally find in your backyard or local community garden, and was host to a number of workshops covering topics from beekeeping and sourcing sustainable food to no-dig gardening. The 24 March 2013 saw the last hurrah for the Summer Garden with Harvest Day. Produce from the garden was used by the Veggie Patch Food Van to whip up some tasty meals, OzHarvest was there to share tips on how to cut food waste at home and three-piece bluegrass band Oh Willy Dear busted out some knee-slapping tunes.
We’ve had a great response to our City Farmer call out. Over 100 volunteers are now helping our City Farm Summer Garden flourish. We’re loving the team spirit!
