Urbavore is an Urban Micro Farm, nestled in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia. We provide weekly veggie boxes to our local community and educational workshops to encourage others to grow more food in urban spaces.

 

Our journey toward urban food resilience began with a simple raised garden bed. As our family has grown, so has our passion for growing healthy organic food.  our micro-farm includes a bio-dynamic market garden, mushrooms, chickens and quails, bees, fruit trees, edible hedges, seed saving, and a lot of composting.

 

Our mission is to feed our community,  reconnect the urban environment with the lost arts of abundant food production and help others on their own journey toward growing more food in urban spaces.

URBAN MICRO-FARMING WORKSHOP: 

URBAN VEGGIES, COMPOST, MUSHROOMS & POULTRY

 

OUR WORKSHOPS ARE BACK THIS SPRING!!!!

Book your space now! Click on "book a Workshop" in the menu at the top of the website page.

This half day workshop is an introduction to growing your own organic veggies and seedlings, composting, keeping poultry and growing mushrooms on an urban scale. Whether you are just getting started with growing your own food or want to upscale your patch, this workshop will get you fired up to grow lots more food at home. 

 

The workshop combines fun hands on sessions with detailed course notes full of practical skills and resources.

 

We'll show you the basics of successful seedling propagation, bed prep, crop spacing and organic pest control methods to maximise your production of nutrient dense veggies in a small space.


Learn the art of composting, integrating poultry and how to make organic liquid fertilisers to help boost soil biology and plant growth. 

You'll discover how easy it is to grow your own supply of fresh oyster mushrooms and the steps involved in simple mushroom cultivation.

The workshop takes place at our home and urban micro-farm in the lower Blue Mountains. Jo and I operate a small scale urban market garden, supplying veggie boxes to our local community, as well as for our own family. We love sharing the skills we have learned over the past decade to maximise food production and minimise waste.

Head home with our detailed course notes and resources to get you started on your own successful urban scale micro-farming journey, plus some free seeds and seedlings, a mushroom bag and other goodies to get you started!

Morning tea & yummies will be provided.
