The City Farm Summer Garden was held at Sydney Park from January 19 to 24 March 2013.  The Summer Garden was a taste of what the final City Farm could offer, with a kitchen garden, market garden, small scale crops, as well as a great program of fun and educational weekend activities.  A team of more than 60 volunteer City Farmers looked after the garden over 12 weeks.

The City is working with the Powerhouse Museum and the community on plans for a new City Farm which will be a destination for food production and learning in the heart of Sydney.  The proposed sites for the City Farm are near the historic brick kilns and chimneys at Sydney Park, St Peters and we are investigating sites around the Powerhouse Museum, Ultimo. 

The City Farm could feature demonstration gardens and orchards, space for community art projects, educational facilities, communal composting facilities and food outlets selling produce.

A feasibility study was developed, including signficiant consultation process during 2010 and the City of Sydney endorsed the Sydney City Farm Feasibility Study in November 2011.  This decision also included the preparation of A Memorandum of Understanding with the Powerhouse Museum to jointly fund and develop the Project.

An Advisory Group with community representatives has been formed to provide advice and feedback during the planning process.  The City will continue to provide opportunities for community involvement, including the Master Plan in 2013, as we work towards the opening of City Farm.
