Northey Street City Farm


City Farm is an ongoing collaborative venture by many folk from its beginnings in 1994. I've been designing, teaching and gardening in this remarkable place since 1996. For the last ten years I've been supporting a community design and planning process as the Farm's offerings to the community grow and its operations become increasingly complex.

Professionally, the highlights for me include:

  • managing the creation of the education space and office (2010), including offering an inclusive platform for people to have input into the process.

  • developing a Whole Farm Plan (2011) that captured the community members' ideas for implementation to 2026.

  • supporting the existing design team and working groups with process and technical expertise on projects and proposals such as the new performance stage and an Access and Movement Strategy.
