United Africa Farm
The Community Farm has been spearheaded by members of Pakenham’s pan-African community who have been trying to access land for over ten years. Their vision is to grow cultural foods, pass on traditions to younger generations, and develop an enterprise and community hub of learning, sharing and growing.
The group were connected with local farmer Vicki Jones through the Cardinia Food Movement, who was willing to make a portion of her farm available to the group to utilise. The first crops of the initiative were planted in early Autumn 2019 and fertilised by laughter, music, dancing and joyous conversations!
