transforming our food system and society to be more sustainable and resilient
Urban food growing has been a part of Peter Kearney’s life since his childhood in Melbourne, Australia. This passion for growing organic food has evolved from those early steps to feeding his own family with an ever expanding supply of organic and biodynamically grown food, to developing community food growing groups and then commencing his urban agriculture business in 2006.
My Food Garden business has weaved a creative path in this new field of urban agriculture and now delivers a range of services that include: educational workshops, mentoring and urban agriculture consulting on large urban food growing projects.
In addition to small scale food grower capability for individuals, My Food Garden is a leading innovator in Australia with planning and designing commercial scale urban agriculture into communities. My Food Garden collaborates with highly skilled organisations and individuals on larger projects where the core theme is developing regenerative urban agriculture outcomes.
