Plants and Animals

Our Community about us 30.10.18.jpg

Our Community

The Collingwood Children’s Farm community is an expansive community built by thousands of interactions, experiences and Farm visits over the past four decades. All those who have visited have a different story to tell, and many have different reasons for visiting.

The Farm has a voluntary Committee of Management  which provides strategic direction and oversees the Farm’s management.

Do you have a skill we could put to good use? Help us build a strong future!


How We Are Funded

Collingwood Children’s Farm does not receive any large, ongoing funding from any government, council or other organisations. We are largely self-funded, and thanks to the support of our community we can continue the great work that happens here!
