Welcome

Canberra City Farm

Welcome to the Canberra City Farm website – new pages appear from time to time as what we do changes, so keep an eye out.

We welcome new members to the Farm and, once the current Health State of Emergency is over, we hope once again to welcome the broader community as well. Surrounded by the Jerrabomberra Wetlands, we are also home to many small insect-eating birds, who work hard with their human companions to keep the garden and farm areas healthy in a sustainable, organic way. We also have the bees from the ACT Beekeepers Association’s hives working to pollinate our trees and plants.

If you would like to join us, please fill in the membership form and come along to a Working Wonders session or a Farm Tour on Monday and Thursday at 9.30am by emailing info@ccfarm.org.au and putting “Farm Tours” in the subject line. Other times are possible by arrangement – at the same contact.

See Activities for some of your options for participation. For the current protections we have in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 for people who attend Canberra City Farm, please check here.

Each month we are holding a You-tube gardening and sustainable living video review session – like an electronic book club, if you like. We had our first session in November and these sessions will be continuing during 2021. To indicate your interest and get onto the Zoom call, email info@ccfarm.org.au

People who are interested in preserving food eg bottling, making jams, jellies and chutneys, drying food, should send an email to info@ccfarm.org.au so we can organise some preservation activities as the harvest on the farm progresses. No experience necessary, lessons provided and jars as well.
