Community Farm

By July 19, 2021June 21st, 2022No Comments

The Monash University Community Farm (MUCF) is a joint project between students, staff and the Notting Hill Neighborhood House  Gardening Group.

 

Working bees are held every Wednesday afternoon, from 4 pm onwards. The goal of MUCF is to facilitate the learning and practice of permaculture and support community-supported agriculture. Through this, the project aims to build resilience and adaptation to climate change.

 

The Development of the Community Farm 

In 2011, the hardworking team of Monash Permaculture Gardeners oversaw the establishment of a new permaculture site, of farm-sized proportions, at the rear of 700 Blackburn Road. 

Run in the spirit of community gardens, the farm is shared with the Notting Hill Neighbourhood House Gardening Group and Monash University staff and students, providing a facility for Monash staff and students to learn and share skills in a special type of ecological gardening, known as permaculture.
