Welcome to the August edition of E-News.  

In this edition we have the latest Covid-19 update as it relates to the farm.  We also have a pictorial celebration of 25 years of Northey Street City Farm.  Maybe you'd like to join one of our fabulous sustainable living workshops?  With school holidays quickly approaching you may want to book your young ones in for the Spring Earth Kids program.  Read on......



The nursery, market and educational programs will continue to operate with a COVID Safe Plan / Safe Checklist and any industry specific requirements. We will continue to monitor updates from the QLD Health and follow their public health directions as required.

Other than the general QLD Health advice regarding COVID prevention, our volunteer sign on book includes contact tracing information, and we are putting a temporary hold on recruitment and induction of new volunteers until we know the full extent of community transmission of COVID-19 related to the recent cluster at Wacol Youth Detention Centre.

We acknowledge that this continues to be a tough time for many with COVID-19 restrictions etc.  If so, we encourage you to reach out to friends and family or one of the warm, friendly and understanding people at the end of these phonelines:

Lifeline: Call 13 11 14
Beyond Blue: Call 1300 224 636
Headspace: Call 1800 650 890

Lets continue to all look out for each other.

The Farm has reached its' 25 year milestone!

What a fascinating journey its been and will continue to be.
