Did YOU Know?

That there are over 47,000 people in the Logan Region who require daily food assistance? Yep, it’s true and we are going to do something about it.

We are creating a network of Urban Farms in the Logan Region.

Loganlea SHS Urban Farm will be the first of a number of farms and will be our template for farms in Schools. 

This farm is also part of a greater Loganlea Urban Farm and Food Forest Project.

Greater Loganlea Urban Farm and Food Forest Project Problem Statement: 

With over 47,000 people relying on food relief in the Logan region, it is important that our region can access and distribute locally grown food. This project will be an important enabler to identify the community’s and business’s understanding and resilience to disruptions such as weather extremes, pandemics, and other disaster-related activities in accessing locally grown food. 

“Even the tiniest of actions can change the future.”

Casey Newton, Tomorrowland

AIMS

The Urban Farm and Food Forest Project at Loganlea State High School is our first demonstration site of what can be achieved across Logan schools for integrating urban farming into the culture and curriculum of schools from Prep through to University. Through the City Studio initiative in 2021, we aim to devise shared activities and curriculum between selected Year 10, 11 and 12 students at Loganlea High and first-year university students enrolled in Griffith University’s Urban and Environmental Planning Degree. In August, students will conduct site assessments, data collection, stakeholder engagement and participate in team-building exercises that will prepare a 1⁄4 acre Urban Farm site and an Indigenous Food Forest site within Loganlea State High School. In October, a Presentation Day at Griffith University’s Logan Campus will provide student insights and recommendations for the implementation of the sites in 2022. 

Benefits to the Logan Region

The initial demonstration site at Loganlea, will create a ground-swell for a larger Logan Food City project. By connecting high school and university students, Logan’s young people can directly participate in the design and application of sustainable and resilient food futures that address the challenges of climate change and pandemic conditions. This collaboration, with opportunities to problem-solve food disadvantage and ideate solutions, de-mystifies University for students who might otherwise not consider higher-education as an attainable pathway into a future career. It provides existing university students with the opportunity to mentor and forge professional liaisons with Logan City Council and job prospects. Food literate and entrepreneurial youth, empowered to create the food futures they want to see, can only benefit the sustainability and resilience of the Logan region.
