In cities around the world, urban farms are being utilised to provide unique educational experiences and enterprising services for communities. Modelling for the national park indicates it could generate over 500 000 vis

itors per annum and directly inject $3.75 m into the economy each year. It would create up to 48 new ongoing jobs.
