Who Are We?

The Lyneham Commons Food Forest Project is part of a world wide movement of urban people to bring food growing to urban spaces. We are driven by a number of things:

  • concerns about food security in the context of peak oil and climate change
  • a desire to bring an awareness of the important of growing food and sustainable living to our neighbours and friends
  • a vision of food growing in abundance in sustainable ecosystems in open, public unused spaces across the city – accessible to all
  • ideas about cultivating community social capital through the sharing of a food growing space

But while we see our place in this broad and varied movement we are just a small fledgling local group living, working and playing in and around the suburb of Lyneham in Canberra Australia.

Our particular  vision is to work with our local government to transform a piece of highly accessible local public unused land into a sustainable holistic food space that retains its public character.

  1. I would love to see something like this come to life in Lyneham. Are you going to have a table at the up coming Lyneham shops party this weekend? That would be a great forum to build support and start the discussion. Look forward to talking with you all.

      1. Hi Margaret,

        I met you at the Lyneham party at the shops and gave you my contact details. I’ve had a bunch of ideas I’m keen to discuss with you. What’s the process?
