Project Status: Under review
Help shape the future of Sydney City Farm
Thanks to everyone who took part in our recent consultation about Sydney City Farm.
More than 1,000 people watched our video and more than 140 responded to our survey about the business plan for the farm.
The results showed you continue to value City Farm as a hub for community activity and a place for learning about urban agriculture.
In April 2021 we ran some community workshops to discuss priorities for the farm, and how the community can be involved in the farm’s future management. Thank you to those that joined these sessions and provided us with your ideas and feedback.
Why we’re doing this
We want to know what you value most about Sydney City Farm.
Hundreds of volunteers have been working with us to set up and grow the farm in Sydney Park, St Peters.
Our produce is harvested and shared with those who need it most.
We minimise waste while using organic growing principles.
People learn new skills at our workshops and connect at our community events.
Help us continue to nurture and develop this important urban agriculture project.
Let us know why the farm matters to you and your ideas on its future growth, such as new programs or activities.
Your feedback will be used to shape the farm’s revised business plan.
