Perth City Farm is a non-profit Urban Farm enabling connected, sustainable lives.  

We operate our half-hectare site as a vibrant community orientated platform that provides space and opportunities to build community connections and educates and enables people to live sustainably. Annually 160,000 people make use of our site. 

Corporate volunteers help us very practically to maintain our Farm so we can run our community programs, and the financial contribution from corporate volunteering contributes to funding these programs. 

Corporate volunteering helps us achieve considerable annual impact.

This is physical volunteering and is likely to involve lifting and crouching. Participants will have a safety induction at the start of the day and you’ll take lots of breaks. Our farmer can work with individuals to modify most activities to suit different abilities, so everyone can participate and access the benefits of gardening. Our site is a working farm and has uneven surfaces and lots of mulch paths. If anyone in your group uses mobility aids like a wheelchair please let us know and we can plan our activities to suit. 

We’re located just outside of the Perth CBD and have excellent public transport links as well as lots of paid parking in front of our site. 

Teams from organisations including Stockland, Development WA, Health Engine and UWA have recently joined us to volunteer at the Farm.

Blog: Why corporate volunteering is more important than ever

Blog: Why corporate volunteering is more important than ever

Over the past two years, we’ve seen a big change in how people work with more and more people opting to work from home rather than the office. While there are many perks to this, an unfortunate downside can be a disconnect between employees and increased isolation.
