Can I become a Farm It Forward landowner?
We are at capacity for growing plots at present but you can still get in touch and go on our waiting list. We are a small enterprise and, as such, are limited in our capacity to respond individually to all inquiries.
Can I come along to a volunteer session?
Yes! Our community volunteer sessions are held on Friday afternoons from 2pm on a different plot each week. We announce them each week on Facebook and Instagram. Send us a FB or Insta message if you want to come along and we will message you the address.
What is a 50/50 plot?
Thanks to help from Blue Mountains city council, we were able to establish '50/50 plots' where we actively helped set up a vegetable garden in the backyards of vulnerable members of the community and regularly provide help, guidance and seedlings in return for any excess produce they may have. If you are in a a low income household, you or someone in your household has a disability, or you are a single parent of small children, we may be able to help. Get in touch :)
What does 'regeneratively grown' mean?
We use absolutely no synthetic sprays, pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers, not even 'certified organic' ones. We replenish organic matter in our soil with composted manures, compost and worm castings, nothing more, nothing less. We have so far regenerated over 1.5 acres of soil to health, allowing it to store carbon and grow nutrient-dense food.
