About 3000 Acres We're building a platform to connect people to land, resources and each other so that more people can grow more food in more places. We want to build holistic and sustainable cities for generations to come by changing how we use vacant land, establishing strong relationships between community, business, and government.
What we do We're trying bridge the gap between traditional grassroot methods of growing food and city planning policies.
Sometimes, when people want to start to grow food, it can be hard to find a site or know who to talk to for access or planning approval. We have noticed a lot of empty and underutilised land across Melbourne and beyond. We are helping to connect people who want to grow food, with land, with other people, and also with the right people in local government, to make sure everyone can work together.
Our website provides a map of actual and potential places to grow food. A team including representatives from local government review potential sites and help make suitable land easier to find.
We provide ways for people to get in touch and organise around their plot, as well as resources to help get started and make connections with land owners, local councils, and a whole range of resources.
