Everybody interested in learning about urban agriculture and sustainable food production is welcome at Sydney City Farm. Nestled in a sunny spot of Sydney Park, a steady stream of volunteers helps sow seeds, weed, water, and eventually harvest fresh seasonal produce following organic growing practices.
The farm aims to boost interest in urban agriculture and help people connect with their food and understand where it comes from. People can participate in small group horticulture and food production workshops on herb propagation, working bees, and fruit pruning essentials and more. Minimising waste and sustainable living are also significant focuses on the farm; seminars on topics like food recycling in apartment buildings and recycling garden organics are also regularly offered. Industry experts are always on hand to share their knowledge.
Those who volunteer are promised exciting and rewarding work to learn new skills and meet other city dwellers with similar interests.
