To find out what we said we wanted in the new City Farm proposed for Sydney Park, visit the City of Sydney’s Yoursay site
The range of suggestions are compatable with our vision of showcasing urban sustainability, organic food growing and educating children on where our food comes from.
Growing and producing local food
having free range animals like chooks
an organic cafe
using smart and sustainable design
Being an environmental education hub with lots of community engagement and activities for kids.
Often when I meet people and tell them about the vision to create a City Farm and sustainable living centre in the heart of Sydney, they look into the distance and start imagining their farm: ‘It could have a bike repair workshop… and a Saturday growers market … and an and interweb of paths that wind through the orchard. There would be a solar house and an organic cafe…’ But everyone has a different idea of what the perfect city farm would be, and we want to record all these ideas to combine the best ones, and hit the ground running when we get a site.
So tell us: What does your City Farm look like? How does it run? What events do you have? And what do you want to grow?
Write your comments as a response to this blog and we will make sure they get considered in any proposal for the City Farm.
