We are delighted to announce that our allotments are reopening in July 2023!
We recently tested our soils following contamination from the 2022 flood, and we are happy that that the soil health in our allotment beds means they are now ready for planting. The allotments are set to reopen in July!
Do you want to grow your own fresh food, but don’t have access to your own garden plot?
Northey Street City Farm’s Allotment Gardens are the perfect opportunity to get started. Grow your own organic food, learn from others and share in this wonderful inner-city community.
To apply for an allotment, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The allotment beds are 1m x 4.5m and can be hired for an annual fee (listed below) plus a $70 refundable bond (conditions apply). As allotments are a members’ benefit, we require all allotment holders to become members of Northey Street City Farm. To apply for membership, and to find out about the other benefits of becoming a member, see our Membership page.
As an NSCF member, you will receive a 10% discount on purchases from the City Farm Nursery, the convenient place to buy all your allotment needs like seedlings, mulch, and soil amendments.
Allotment fees (annual):
$208 (Health Care Card / Low Income) | $312 (Middle Income) |$416 (High Income / Organisations).
By offering a sliding scale fee we are able to make our allotments more accessible to low-income earners. We ask you to nominate the amount which is most suited to your financial situation.
