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 Community Association (Notting Hill Neighbourhood House Gardening Group), providing a facility for Monash staff and students to learn and share skills in a special type of ecological gardening, known as permaculture.
