Smart and efficient irrigation for community-run, educational farm
See Project Updates

The initiative

Perth City Farm is a community-run not-for-profit where volunteers run a half-acre urban farm in East Perth. It’s designed to educate the community in the benefits of growing healthy food and making sustainable living choices. Their old irrigation system was old and prone to leaking, which meant water wastage. Professional irrigator Craig Witten helped install a modern smart irrigation system that uses water efficiently and effectively.

Perth City Farm is about connecting with the community and sharing skills about sustainable living.

— Kathleen Burton, CEO Perth City Farm
