It's hard to believe that Perth City Farm in East Perth, founded in 1994 was a 'former scrap metal yard and battery recycling facility. This once highly polluted site has been lovingly rehabilitated over many years by volunteers to become a thriving community garden and WA icon for environmental sustainability and community engagement.' City Farm as it is today is testament to the dedication, determination and hard work of the founding members, many of whom came from a background with Men of the Trees..
The fruit trees were abundantly in fruit.. the herb nursery delightfully fragrant, it is an amazing space. I'm pretty on top of recycling but have to admit slipping up on a few of the items mentioned below, like bread tags, some make-up products.. on to it now :) Oh and did I mention I had the freshest, tastiest poached eggs for breakfast at the City Farm Cafe, so good! Do you have such reclaimed spaces so close to your city? Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..
