Fans of sustainable living and organic food should take some time this weekend to visit the City Farm consultation day in Sydney, which will give people the chance to see what can be achieved in metropolitan land lots.
This could serve as inspiration for residents of property in Carlton to begin their own backyard horticultural adventures in the near future. Speaking about the event, lord mayor Clover Moore said that the project began as a way for inner city dwellers to get a taste of the agricultural lifestyle.
"Many inner-city dwellers don't have a backyard of their own, and this open space will allow visitors to get their hands dirty, experience hands-on learning about locally grown food and enjoy fresh air and outdoor activities," said Ms Moore in a 19 March statement.
Belonging to the Sydney community, people are encouraged to take the time out and have their say about the project. Staff will be available all day to take suggestions and provide information for anyone with a growing interest in the experience.
The space includes a fruit-filled orchard, native herbs, bush tucker plants and a farmers' market for the produce grown in the community space. This could be a wonderful outing to visit this weekend (21 March), so be sure to head along and see the Sydney City Farm in person.
