City Farm

The City Farm is a community vision for a working urban farm in the heart of the City, including an orchard, education, volunteering and sustainability programs and small animals.

We have worked with the community, the Sydney City Farm community group and the Powerhouse Museum to develop the City Farm Business Plan, which was endorsed by Council in September 2014.

We have now developed a draft concept design for the City Farm at Sydney Park, which reflects the activities in the business plan and the community’s ideas and aspirations for the farm gained through previous consultation events. Check out the Concept Design in the City Farm Library and fill out our Feedback Form.

Come along to Sydney Park on Saturday 21 March from 9.30am to 1pm to see how the community’s feedback has shaped the concept design for City Farm. You can also have your say and get involved in some fun activities including bee keeping, a site visit and a bush tucker tour.

We are also looking for your ideas and inspiration for the identity and design of the farm. Click on the Signage Feedback tab below to share with us your suggestions.

Outcomes from this process will be used to inform the next stage of design development, before the design is approved and work gets underway!
