Kelmarna City Farm
Kelmarna City Farm is an iconic 4 acre market garden and food forest in Auckland’s Herne Bay that has been operating for over 30 years. Carl was commissioned in 2016 by the Kelmarna gardens Trust to create a redevelopment plan for the gardens in consultation with the local community. Over the next 3 years he was hands-on in implementing this plan. Carl built steps, compost bins, mulch containment, extensive subsurface drainage, garden edging and retaining walls all with the help of numerous volunteers. Kelmarna is a great example of a community-centric urban farm providing a valuable service in terms of education and demonstrating regenerative farming techniques.
