I've just come across the exciting Sydney City Farm project who are trying to create a green sanctuary to showcase an eco-friendly future in the heart of Sydney at Callan Park in Iron Cove, Rozelle.
The Sydney City Farm vision is for a place where we can come together to grow organic food, learn about the latest in water-saving techniques, climate-friendly renewable technologies.
They hope to achieve this by creating a vibrant centre of learning and community participation through the creation and management of an urban permaculture garden, an organic farm and environmental management showcase, modelled on city farm projects in New York, London and Melbourne.
It is envisaged that the Sydney City Farm will become a key centre for connecting the community and generating the shared accomplishments which build long term neighbourliness and community cohesion. It will be a focal point for strong community involvement and education in sustainable living practices as well as developing cultural, creative and recreational activities and events.
They are holding a public meeting this weekend and I encourage anyone with an interest in this to attend to hear about this visionary plan and show your support:
When: Saturday 12 July - 12pm - 1pm
Where: Sydney College of the Arts lecture theatre, Callan Park, Rozelle.
