Canberra City Farm has a number of allotments of various sizes that members can rent on an annual basis to grow their own food. This can be especially helpful for those who live in high rise or don’t have access to land to make their own garden. At the moment, there is a waiting list, so please contact for further information and to be placed on the list. There is an expectation that people who work these plots will also participate in teaching others and will volunteer some time to the larger Farm purposes, in a way that fits in with their other commitments.

Please note, you must be a financial member of the Farm to go on the waiting list for an allotment and you must be a financial member whenever you are renting a plot.

Current members of the Plot Management Team are John Peters and Peter Moorhouse. They report back to the Committee with any suggestions from allotment holders and provide information from the Committee of Canberra City Farm to Allotment Holders. They can be contacted through or you can bump into them on the Farm or on their Allotments.

Building on earlier work, we have developed a handbook for our garden allotment holders.    The handbook provides guidance to assist in  looking after the garden allotments, and the communal areas of the Farm.  If you have any suggested changes or additions, please email A copy of the handbook is available here.
