Spoke and Spade is an urban farm growing seasonal vegetables for the local community. They pre-sell $20 veggie boxes using the community-supported agriculture (CSA) model.
They follow organic and regenerative principles and hope to nurture soil life to create to healthy food. They grow without any nasty chemicals and prioritise Aus Certified Organic inputs (although they are not Certified Organic). They have had our soil tested to confirm their farm’s produce is free from heavy metal contamination.
As an urban farm, Spoke and Spade are growing a story for people to eat and connect to the place they live and to the farmer they purchase food from. Their aim is to encourage connections through food. From farmers to families, neighbours to soil health, and recipes to the local grocery store – all upheld as important parts of life. They hope to create not just good food in the local economy, but a greater sense of place in community. They hope to change, challenge and improve on food systems locally and abroad.
