Our Vision is ‘All Living Sustainably’
Northey Street City Farm Inc. is a non-profit organisation and community based urban permaculture farm which promotes and educates for sustainability. By supporting the Farm through membership, you are supporting sustainable living in the city. NSCF provides a space for people to engage with our gardens, orchards, chooks, open space, and most importantly, our inclusive and welcoming community. During the week we work with volunteers to maintain the gardens for public enjoyment and to educate on permaculture principles. We offer Permaculture education for adults. The farm also provides group tours and school activities.
We run a range of sustainability workshops to help people start their own gardens, learn about bee keeping, make textiles using natural materials and the like. Our City Farm Nursery, where you can purchase edible plants, bush tucker and find all your gardening needs, is open Thursday to Sunday. The Northey Street City Farm Organic Market, where you can purchase locally sourced organic food, runs every Sunday from 6am to 11am.
