TOURS & SCHOOL EXCURSIONS
We love to show people of all ages around Perth City Farm and
can tailor our tours to suit different age groups and interests.
Tours make for excellent sustainability school excursions and
are particularly popular with schools, TAFE and University
groups, gardening groups and social groups.
Perth City Farm tours are;
- Exciting, interactive and hands-on
- Educational: sustainability, agriculture, science, arts
- Centrally located and easily accessible
- Easy to book
Perth City Farm is a non-profit community environmental
centre and operational urban farm. Founded 25 years ago on
the site of a former battery recycling facility, this once very
degraded site has been lovingly rehabilitated over many years to become a Western Australian icon for environmental sustainability and community engagement.
As a small non-profit organisation tour and sustainability school excursion fees help us keep the gardens lush and productive and open to the public all year round.
THEMES for our tours include:
- Food Production: veggie growing, fruit trees, medicinal herbs
- Waste Management: compost, worm farms, recycling facility
- Animals: chickens, ducks and bees and their care
- History of the Farm: a volunteer lead community project
