We made it!

Thankyou web

Thank you so much for your amazing support. We’ve been blown away the enthusiasm and generosity that our Chuffed campaign has stimulated. Thanks to you and many others our campaign has raised a whopping $13,541!
Thanks to your generous support we now have the funds we need to set up our fences, soil amendments, irrigation, buy our hand tools, buy a six row seeder and construct a polytunnel.

In late December we announced the location of our farm which is in St Johns Avenue, Newtown.

Work will begin on the site in early 2015 and there will be lots of opportunities for you to get more involved with the project. We are aiming for an official farm launch in April, by which time we are hoping the farm will be looking schmicko!

Thanks again for your fantastic support. The Hobart City Farm quite simply wouldn’t be possible without you.

We hope you had a fantastic festive season and that we’ll see you down the City Farm this year.
