URBAN FARMS IN Sydney's unused spaces.
In June 2016 we opened our first urban farm at Camperdown Commons. The farm is on the former and abandoned Camperdown Bowling Club in Sydney's inner west. Our urban farm is a community hub where you can come and visit the productive ecological farm, get your hands dirty volunteering, take part in our composting program, attend a range of workshops, events, and yoga classes, and bring your school, corporate or community group for a tour, talk or workshop.
Importantly, the farm is a place to visit, enjoy productive green space in the city, dig your hands in the soil, and learn all about where exactly our food comes from and how it’s grown!
If you'd like us to keep you updated with events, workshops and yoga classes and opportunities to be involved you can sign up to our email newsletter.
