Sydney City Farm

Sydney City Farm

See you in 2019

We’ll take a break from volunteer and education programs over Christmas and the new year period.

City staff will take care of watering and maintenance.

Visit this page again in 2019 for upcoming sessions and programs.

City Farm grows

City farms are being set up throughout Australia and the world, as people want to learn more about their food and the connections between paddock and plate.

Our Sydney City Farm

Sydney City Farm is an urban agriculture project nurtured by the City of Sydney in Sydney Park. It's a place to learn about urban agriculture and sustainable food production.

The farm’s community hub and cropping area was officially opened in 2017. An orchard and other facilities will follow.

We plan on holding community events, workshops and farmers’ markets with plenty of opportunities to be involved at the community hub.

We’ll be growing fresh seasonal produce at the cropping area, connecting the city with the country and minimising waste while using organic growing principles.

Learn with us

Education is an important part of our social enterprise model, with income helping support our urban agriculture ventures. 

Take part in small group horticulture and food production workshops, enjoy a hands-on session with industry experts, or learn about sustainability in our series of talks. Booking terms and conditions.  

Volunteer with us

Sydney City Farm is a place for food production, community participation, education, innovation and collaboration.

You can volunteer at the farm, for education programs and events. When you volunteer you’ll have the opportunity to do interesting and rewarding work, learn new skills and interact with others who share similar interests.
