The Picket Fence Urban Farm

The Picket Fence Urban Farm

This Farm Program is a Community focused project run by St Mary’s Anglican Church

Our Urban Farm/Community Garden flourishes with abundance and a great symbiotic relationship between the humans, plants and creatures, all working together as we co-create with nature.

This  abundant Garden/Farm, which commenced in 1997 is a place where volunteers share in a safe welcoming space, to enjoy working and learning with camaraderie and co-operation in a relaxed atmosphere

The Garden and shop are open:

Monday        8:00 – 11:30am
Thursday      8:00 – 11:30am
Friday            8:00 – 11:30am
