This month we wish all our supporters health and wellbeing as we face the huge disruption to our daily lives. Northey Street City Farm is changing the way we operate to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep providing our community with fresh organic produce, the plants and seeds to grow your own, and the information to help you live a resilient lifestyle.
We have unfortunately had to cancel the Autumn Equinox this year and Monthly Organic Night Markets. We have postponed the Australasian Permaculture Convergence to 12 - 15 April 2021 and bookings remain open.
The Education Team is working from home for the next month, developing some new online offerings and new workshops for when we re-open the program. On April 7th we are offering a ‘Connecting your Children to Nature’ webinar for parents. See under EARTH KIDS for more information. Also, keep an eye on our website and social media for news of more online webinars and sustainable living blogs. We have also cancelled all school visits and Farm tours for three months. As the Farm will be operating with the office closed for a month and only skeleton staff on site, and we have closed the volunteer and Work for the Dole programs as well.
Workshops for the next month have been rescheduled to later in the year. However, we are using this opportunity to develop some exciting initiatives.

The Northey Street Organic Markets will be open every Sunday to provide fresh organic produce in an open air environment. Due to tighter government regulations on farmers market numbers and social distancing, we will only have one entrance into the market on Sunday from Northey Street and will be monitoring social distancing for everyone’s health. We ask that you please take these regulations seriously, leave your dogs at home and limit the number of people from a household attending to one where possible. Please ask any vulnerable neighbours if you can shop for them.
The City Farm Nursery will only be accepting payment through tap on cards and will be open Friday to Sunday starting 3 April until further notice. We hope to be offering online nursery sales soon.
Please check our social media and website for our Organic Farmers Market and City Farm Nursery updates on our facebook pages: Northey Street City Farm, Northey St Organic Farmers Market, City Farm Nursery.
We value your support and understanding in these times and we send out our love to the global community for good health, recovery and for the earth’s regeneration. Please take care and apart from shopping for essential supplies, where possible #stayhome
