Visiting the Green Connect Farm

aerial view of green connect farmTen short years ago, the land behind Warrawong High School was a wasteland of weeds. Today, thanks to a passionate team of volunteers and staff, the Green Connect Farm is one of the largest urban permaculture farms in the world and an internationally-awarded model for sustainable development.

We love sharing our little patch of paradise with our community. Walking around the beautiful and abundant market gardens, food forests, and regenerated creek lines is calming. Learning about how we work with nature to grow fair food is inspiring. Interacting with the pigs, goats, sheep, alpacas, and chooks is just plain fun!

After months of lockdown, we are so excited to invite the community back to the farm. And we are thrilled to announce that we will now be offering veg box customers a free farm tour!

Veg box customers are an integral part of the ethical and sustainable food system we are striving to create. We want you to experience the magic of the farm and be proud of the difference you’re making in our community and to the planet.

More information about tickets and dates for upcoming farm tours will be sent to all customers via email soon. We’re also planning a veg box customer get-together in the farm gardens later this summer, so stay tuned for more information on that. In the meantime, we invite you to check out the summer farm tour schedule and our summer workshops if you’re keen to learn more in depth about chemical-free gardening, permaculture, beekeeping.

We can’t wait to see you on the farm soon!

Did you know?

Radishes are members of the Brassicaceae family, and are related to kale, broccoli, cauliflower and horseradish, to name a few. Though radishes are small, they are full of fibre and can be quite filling. Adding them to roasts is a great idea as they’ll absorb the seasoning and their slightly bitter flavour will disappear. You can also pickle them, sauté them, bake them in a gratin or pie, and you can blend them to add to smoothies or soups!
