Family Open Day at our Urban Farm here in Newcastle

Such a great day it was! So good to see so many kids and adults come out for the morning and spend some time at the Feedback Organic urban farm. We were lucky enough to have another Open Day with beautiful weather — sure it was a little breezy — but it was lovely to introduce our urban farm concept to some new faces, while giving big air hugs to some of our regulars.

As a community farm, Feedback is a fairly unique one in which we both grow (organic) and process compost food waste in a relatively small urban area. All of which happens, right here, in the heart of Newcastle, NSW. Obviously we are all keen beans, but also think it’s a pretty amazing sustainable model, and method that really is growing our community’s food future.
