If you are travelling along the Armadale train line and happen to stop at the Claisebrook Station, you will get a bird eye's view alongside the train tracks of a rather extensive piece of land containing a thriving permaculture garden, sheds, wandering chickens and a rather colourful papier mache orange dragon. Somewhat of an unexpected location to find a thriving garden, this is the home of City Farm which is located in the heart of East Perth. City Farm has been in existence since 1994 and has been transformed from its previous life as a scrap metal yard to one of rehabilitated lands offering organic produce.

City Farm, East Perth

City Farm is a vibrant place where the community can learn about the environment, contribute their labour to the soils to tender to the thriving garden, and enjoy buying organic produce at its bustling saturday local markets. Take a wander through the gardens to view the thriving organic produce. There are also the playful "resident" chickens and roosters usually strutting their stuff.

Or if markets are your thing, the City Farm Organic Markets are open every Saturday from 8am to 12pm. Organic produce on offer includes a great range of fruits and vegetables, beef, coffee, wheat and rye, flour, dairy products, avocado oil, bread and eggs.

City Farm are always on the lookout for volunteers to help with a range of activities and events happening on the farm. Activities include feeding the animals, collecting eggs, working in the nursery,and pruning, planting or digging. Nothing like pulling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty to work the land for a good cause.

You can't miss it!
