What is Fremantle Social Farm?

Fremantle Social Farm is an initiative of Growing Change Australia Ltd. It is an urban micro-farm in North Fremantle, that operates as a not-for-profit social enterprise. The farm grows crops for sale to local restaurants and households. In doing so, it provides social connection, horticultural therapy, training and employment opportunities for people vulnerable to social isolation in the Fremantle community.

The purpose of Fremantle Social Farm is to break down the barriers to social isolation, leading to greater support for change initiatives that increase participation. The farm promotes social connection, positive health and wellbeing, active aging and economic participation through horticultural programs, with a particular focus on being mentally healthy.

How it works

The farm activates an unused space. Together we plant the seeds, cultivating community connection. And sell our produce locally. In turn, this helps us to provide training and engagement programs. And reduces our collective environmental impact.
