Anyone feel like creating an urban farm?

by

Ever had the urge when looking at a discarded piece of land to create a food oasis? So often in our urban landscape, land considered unimportant, is forgotten behind some security fencing with only weeds (sometimes very tasty ones) being produced or as the unofficial local rubbish dump.

Here is a story about a rubbish dump turned into a evolving urban farm.

If anyone knows of land that could be turned into a urban farm in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, please let us know, I would LOVE to be involved in turning a forgotten piece of land into a thriving food oasis, that not only feeds locals but teaches them about how to produce their own food and live substantively!
