Cities That Feed Our Planet

Enabling urban food security 

At Farmwall we are empowering the community with our way-finding and educational urban farming experiences. We spark meaningful experiences with food and the environment. Our first urban farm is located in Alphington, just off the station at Wingrove St, behind the community farmers' market. Farmwall creates opportunities for the community to get involved urban food production with urban agriculture workshops, volunteering opportunities, school tours, and accessibility to urban food systems.

Farmwall is taking responsibility to help decrease the risks of food insecurity from the ground up, through education, connectivity, training and developing pathways that create job opportunities in the urban and regional food system. We are creating a healthier, educated, connected and more sustainable community that is resilient for the increasing disruptions in our food system.   

What does it mean to be food secure?

As a society there is still a broader lack of awareness of the food security problems and the rising risks new disruptions and cost of living increases are imposing on our communities. 1 in 3 Australians experienced food insecurity in the past year alone and with inflation and the issues of climate change increasing the threat is there that can tip many more over the edge.
We all play a role in the health and wellbeing of our people and planet.
Here's how Farmwall can help

Chats with the communtiy

 Telling the story of the incredible people that are doing incredible work to build an urban food system from the ground up is crucial for Farmwall.  We are helping to build an ecosystem both in the community and online so we can inspire others as well to transform our cities into food producing ecosystems.

Grow your own food while reducing waste and storing carbon

We can increase our food security by re-using our waste. Starting with saving the seed of your supermarket vegetables and using waste styrofoam, plastic containers, PET bottles and even old textiles to create the framework for our nitrate-rich garden. By composting your food waste and coffee grounds, and learning how to companion plant, you'll be bringing a rich yield at no cost. What the videos below to learn how
