Once an ugly disused concrete platform on top of a multi-storey carpark, the Urban Orchard is now the flourishing and productive green heart of Perth. City Farm staff worked with community volunteers to complete the initial plantings of the Urban Orchard and Wetlands back in 2010 and we’ve maintained the spaces to this day. Our Coordinator gardens with volunteers throughout the week to keep the spaces healthy, share the harvest and interact with the public.
We also tend the Urban Wetlands, a thriving fresh-water ecology which is home to frogs, fish, waterbirds and thousands of insects. Our team keep this unique space- once a chlorinated water feature- healthy and beautiful.
On top of a windy carpark, this special garden allows tenants from the attached office building to create and care for their own corporate garden, chooks and beehives. Whether it’s to grow fruit, herbs and vegetables for office lunches, or flowers to use at their social events; office staff have the opportunity to take a break from their busy desk job, connect with colleagues and access the amazing mental health benefits of gardening.
Our City Greening team join these gardeners throughout the week to support them in tending their spaces, lending their expertise and resources.
The City Greening team are working with the Girrawheen community to help them design and install a new community garden that reflects their diverse cultural backgrounds and aspirations, and will be well loved.
Using contemporary community development methodologies, the team are working to inspire and upskill local residents so they can sustain the garden at the close of this project.
