We welcome new members to the Farm. 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 Bee or a Farm Tour on Monday and Thursday at 9.30am by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

Monthly Mingles: Monthly Mingles are returning 2024. The first will be on 18 February. As usual in the cooler seasons we will provide pizza bases, sauce, and cheese; please bring other pizza toppings for our volunteers to prepare various options to share. In hotter months, please bring a plate to share. For details click here.
Working Bees: In addition to our Monday and Thursday working bees,we will be holding weekend working bees every Sunday from 10 am to Noon. For more details click here or see our Events page.
Plant Clinics will now be held at the weekend working bees. If you have been having problems trying to identify pests and diseases which are affecting your garden plants and you don’t know how to deal with them, then a visit to the plant clinic may help. If your plants are not thriving in your soil, perhaps you need some advice on how to make you soil more plant friendly. All gardening questions are welcome. Keith Colls will be happy to answer any of your gardening questions. PLEASE NOTE, if you are bringing diseased plant material or pest insects from home please ensure they are in a sealed plastic bag or glass bottle so they do not contaminate the City Farm gardens.
Workshops: Workshops will continue throughout 2024. As part of our March Monthly Mingle on 17 March the Canberra Seed Savers will be presenting an introductory workshop on basic herb and veggie seed saving. There will also be a Compost Construction workshop on Saturday 16 March. You can find more details about these events here.
