Sign up to hear our farm manager, Cal Champagne walk you through the skills that led he and his team to turn 11-acres of disused land into what is now Green Connect Farm, one of the country’s leading examples of urban agriculture.

Cal has been the manager of Green Connect Farm since its establishment. After growing up on a permaculture demonstration property on the Far South Coast of NSW, Cal moved the Illawarra to study environmental sciences at UOW. He then went on to postgraduate studies in Sustainable Food Systems at the University of Sydney.


Why is Green Connect going online?

Well, because we are proud of the work we have done to turn 11 aces of disused land into a thriving permaculture farm abundant with vegetables, fruit, herbs and animals (goats, pigs, sheep and chickens). And because we’re so proud of it, we want to share it with you while you’re stuck at home. People often ask us what we do, how we do it and why it’s such a success story for the Illawarra. So each week, purchase your tickets to attend a live webinar. Rest assured, as a not for profit, your ticket price goes directly to our farm. Every little bit helps and supports the work that we do.
