March 2009 News + Updates
AGM wraps up 2008, and sets the scene for 2009
The Annual General Meeting was held on the 23rd of December at Callan Park.
The update by President Andrew Jackson on Sydney City Farm’s status after the Callan Park handover to local council control opened up discussion about a renewed strategy for City Farm in 2009. It has become apparent that the local council’s master planning process will take at least two years to complete. So we voted to hold a brainstorming meeting about the direction of Sydney City Farm in the interim period. Check out the details below to join the brainstorming meeting.
President Andrew Jackson’s speech, which sums up the activities of 2008, can be found in the Resources section of the website, along with minutes from the AGM and the organisation’s financial reports for the financial year 2007-2008.

Find all the details about the meeting on our website and RSVP to contribute your ideas when we meet at the Cane Room in Callan Park.
