Food for Lawns, and Paddocks

Lifeforce Food Gardens operates as a multi-plot semi-urban farm based in Mullumbimby, NSW. We only farm using organic, sustainable practises, and our gardens are closely managed and maintained for no weeds- or nearly no weeds :)) and to be beauty-full!

The landowners that offer their lawn (or small paddock) up for local, sustainable, organic agriculture by us, receive a weekly box of organic produce from the farm as either part or full exchange for the use of the land to grow on….we pay for water and power used at the plot.

I have operated this way successfully for over 12 months, and can provide a landownder referee, and invitation to visit my main plot. I have an exchange agreement for clarity and harmony.

SPECIFICATIONS:

LOCATION:    Mullumbimby, Myocum, and surrounds…easy to access

SIZE: 1/8 acre – 1 acre

WATER: Must have access to water (creek, irrigation rights, dam, bore, town water, tank, well etc.).

ELECTRICITY: To run my irrigation system on

SHED: Required to keep our farm tools, and packing, harvesting gear…(willing to pay $ to rent)

ORGANIC: No history of heavy chemical use over the past 5 years…prefer certified organic land, though will happily work with ‘spray free’.

COMMITTMENT: Ideally each plot we take on is for a minimum of 3 years…though we can work with 1 year +

If you have some lawn that you are tired of maintaining, that you would like to convert to beautiful bio-intensive organic agriculture, please contact Sheia sheia@lifeforcefoods.org.au, 0415 358 602
