Harvest Collective North Sydney

What is Harvest Collective North Sydney?

It is an apartment-based approach to sustainable food providing residents of North Sydney with the skills and knowledge to set up a food garden and increase their understanding of sustainable food - in a shared apartment common area.

It is more than a just a planting day - it is designed to build capacity and help residents manage and maintain their food garden.

Since 2018, residents living in apartments have been provided the skills, resources and knowledge to create a shared space, learn from each other, and grow and harvest their own food collectively.


2019 Program

For the Summer program, beginning early February 2019, residents from five apartment buildings will involve others and develop a food garden on-site at their building.


What does Harvest Collective hope to achieve?

  1. To increase engagement and capacity for Strata to grow their own food in North Sydney
  2. to increase local food production and consumption
  3. to reduce food waste going to landfill.



What does it involve?

Harvest Collective is a structured program of seed-to-table workshops, with the aim of increasing local food production and consumption through a combination of facilitated hands-on learning and capacity building. Some materials and resources will be provided to help get the food garden up and running.



What earlier 2014 Harvest participants said about Harvest North Sydney...

This has been one of the best experiences, thank you so much for investing time and resources in me. It really is appreciated.

Thanks Danielle and Toni for giving up your weekends to run the course, I thought it was really worthwhile and it has changed the way I do things on a daily basis-including growing my own food and shopping for produce.

I found the course most inspiring. I wished everyone in Australia could have had that same experience. I feel privileged indeed! Toni's enthusiasm and passion for her subject was indeed infectious.
