Are you supportive of an urban farm in Eltham?


Local Food Connect has been working to achieve an Eltham community farm (Fabbro’s Farm) at Bell Street for several years.

Further progress is now dependent on Nillumbik Council judging there to be sufficient community support for the idea. In this context, their consultation page asks you to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the question “Are you supportive of an urban farm at Fabbro Fields, Eltham?” plus provide any additional comments that you wish. Closing date: 20th July 2023..

The image right is an architect’s view of Fabbro’s shed showing the addition of a covered area to facilitate outdoor education, farm gate sales and general community enjoyment of the farm.

If you would like to know more about the project, here is some of the material produced thus far by Local Food Connect:
