Discover the magic of the Green Connect farm!

Just 13 minutes’ drive south of Wollongong CBD you’ll discover Green Connect Farm, an 11-acre award-winning urban farm. Green Connect Farm follows organic farming and permaculture principles to produce vegetables, fruit, herbs, nuts, eggs, honey and free-range meat.

Your 90-minute experience will include an interactive and informative tour, as well as time to explore the children’s garden. You’ll visit the thriving market gardens and food forests and seek out the free-range goats, sheep, pigs and chickens to offer them a pat and a feed! You’ll learn about the incredible story of the Green Connect Farm and hear about how we work with nature to grow and distribute food in a truly sustainable way.

This tour is designed for anyone wanting to experience the abundance and beauty of the Green Connect Farm and find out a bit more about permaculture principles and practices. There will be lots of opportunities to get hands-on, engage your senses, and ask questions as you explore this magical space.
