We now have a range of preserves for sale – made mostly from Canberra City Farm produce by our volunteers on the Preserving Team. We have arranged to sell our preserves through the Open Food Network Shop on-line at https://openfoodnetwork.org.au/canberra-city-farm/shop.
Our products can be paid for in the Open Food Network Shop using a credit card via Stripe. You can let us know on your order which day you want to pick them up from the Farm – currently Tuesday or Thursday afternoon between 4.00-6.00pm or Monday 10-12pm. You must order and pay via the Open Food Network Shop BEFORE you take any preserves.
If you choose the Monday pickup, bring your proof of purchase to Canberra City Farm and ask for Fiona, Beth or Deb.
If you choose he Tuesday or Thursday pick-up, take your proof of purchase to the Southern Harvest area at the Farm and they will provide you with your preserves. Enter by car through the Rangers’ Wetland Entrance.
If you are a Southern Harvest Subscriber you can also order your Canberra City Farm preserves through the Southern Harvest store for delivery with your box.
Preserves make great Christmas presents for your friends and family and we have some very special ones available.
From time to time, we have other products for sale and these will also be put on the Canberra City Farm Open Food Network Shop. Current Christmas specials are our beautiful warty gourds – perfectly dried for making into eco-friendly Christmas decorations. At $2 each , they can be used to make beautiful decorations and for children’s crafts or “active” presents for them to create something for themselves. They make great low impact home decor as well, as shown below. We will have some Gourd Christmas decorations on display at the Molonglo Park Christmas Fair on Sunday 5 December between 12-5pm if you want some ideas.
