We thought its about time to add our first blog on this amazing platform.
We believe that the vulnerable in our communities deserve access to good quality and nutritious food.
We believe that food insecurity can be eliminated through a chain of special purpose urban and peri urban farms.
We use a variety of growing methods to grow food anywhere.
The food we grow is donated freely to local charities and food security agencies.
We are the Mini Farm Project.
An Australian charity that converts under-utilised spaces into urban farms, to grow food for people in need.
Currently we have 3 active urban farm sites in Brisbane, located at Camp Hill, Woolloongabba and Spring Hill. We also have 1 non active 30 acre site in Tabooba.
Our founder and CEO, Nick Steiner, has been working hard setting up these sites with our volunteer mini farmers. In 2019 we have some big expansion plans. Stay tuned.

Located at Bennetts Road, Camp Hill. This site is land shared by Timber Tots Child Care Centre. It is on 800m2 and has 36 beds 1m x 7.6m. The site was built on an old timber mill. We brought in wood chip and carved out beds and added compost and soil.
