That is what you will find at the City Farm Nursery. Tucked away behind the Royal Brisbane Hospital at Northey Street City Farm is our nursery. What makes it unique is that it is a not-for-profit member owned nursery run by passionate staff and volunteers. We specialise in propagating and making available long life annuals, climate specific and different plants and fruit trees that other nurseries might not readily supply. It was started 15 years ago by passionate volunteers who saw the need to educate and provide edible seedlings and plants to people in Brisbane’s inner city.
Going from strength to strength it has grown into a fully-fledged nursery that is a member of the Nursery & Garden Industry Association Queensland.
We support the Farm’s vision of ‘Sustainability For All’ by providing organic and chemical free plants and good old-fashioned advice on all things you can grow in your City garden.
This is what some of our customers say…
“The delightful City Farm Nursery, a go-to place for edible, organic and rare plant species, provides a haven for birds, bees, frogs and people alike. The atmosphere is calming with an abundance of beauty and art. Thanks to the helpful advice from the staff, our garden is stocked with fruit trees, herbs and plants that are ideal for our subtropical climate. I highly recommend this nursery!”
“The best permaculture based plant nursery in Australia! We Brisbanites are very lucky to have such a great resource. Organically grown plants, with locally saved seed and cuttings ensures you get the most resilient plants for your garden. I’ve been designing edible landscapes and permaculture gardens for 20 years and recommend the City Farm Nursery.”
