My Food Garden provides knowledge and services to support the transformation of our food system to being more local and organic. Our business empowers people living in and around cities to be more productive at growing their own food.
We are located in Brisbane, Australia and deliver our services locally and nationally. Our services in urban farming and organic gardening combine a mixture of hands-on education, mentoring and garden building, in addition to working on larger scale urban agriculture projects. Supporting the emergence of financially sustainable urban farming is one of our core goals.
The business commenced in 2006 and our first web site release in 2008 was under the name of Cityfood Growers and we are now branded as My Food Garden. The company was founded by Peter Kearney, an experienced organic and biodynamic gardener, educator, urban farmer and strategist.
The business has a small team with passion and knowledge in organic food growing and an expanding set of relationships with the movers and shakers of urban agriculture around the world.
good content in the information given. great hands on demonstrations and workshops. it was good to confirm that I have been on the right track with my gardening methods, and have picked some new information to try. great weekend and some new like minded friends
A brilliant 2 days in a beautiful location lead by an inspirational instructor! I feel that the missing pieces of the gardening puzzle were finally revealed to me....and they all had a bit of cow poo in them! A very hands on workshop where everything made sense and all questions were answered by Peter in a way that could be easily understood. I look forward to growing my own soil, cover crops and composting, and not throwing money away on buying in poor quality soil again. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in keeping plants alive and thriving naturally.
Fantastic experience. Learnt so many new concepts and practical techniques and met some amazing, like-minded gardeners whom we will stay in touch with so we can follow each other's urban food garden journey.
