 ME Farm (Multicultural Enterprises Farm) exists to:

  • Promote and teach people methods in growing vegetables and fruits sustainably

We exist on a 250m2 urban backyard in Sydney. We are utilising the SPIN (Small Plot Intensive) methods.

Our farm site after only 4 months of ground work. The volunteers have added the scarecrow as part of there own personal touch to production.

Turning of the soil three times over a 2 week period provided ample control of couch and kikuyu grass from this area. We moved onto bed preparation with the help of volunteer groups.

Bed preparation included adding rich humus compost. The beds were turned a fourth time and leveled for seeding straight into. We also sprayed the beds with microbiological agents.

Starting is always the hardest part. Thankfully we have some wonderful volunteers who are willing and able to make easy work of this patch. We used a rotary tiller and rotary plough.
