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.
Our City Farm provides an open 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 the opportunity to gain a Permaculture Design Certificate by leaders in the permaculture field. The farm also provides tours to groups 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 is open Thursday to Sunday where you can purchase edible plants, bush tucker and find all your gardening needs.
The Northey Street City Farm Organic Market, where you can purchase locally sourced organic food, runs every Sunday from 6 am. to 11 am.
