Canberra City Farm Open Day 2018
The 2018 Open Day was held on Sunday 11 November 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
There was so much happening, including hourly farm tours, rocket stove demonstrations, worm composting talks, a novice gardener workshop and making a polytunnel, making a wicking bed demonstration, cooking with native foods demonstration, talks about energy efficient housing, pizza cooked in the City Farm cob oven, bicycle blender smoothies, local stalls with products to purchase, kids activities and so much more!
Around 1,000 visitors attended and through the entry fee and sales of pizzas (we sold 140 of these), yummy bicycle blender smoothies (we sold 50 of these), plants and preserves, we raised around $4,200. We also managed to raise $200 in support of those burnt in the kitchen accident (which we are discussing topping it up with some of our gate takings).
