Farm Manager & Co-Founder, Pocket City Farms

Michael Zagoridis is the farm manager and co-founder of Pocket City Farms, a not-for-profitout of Sydney, looking to transform unused city spaces into urban farms. His experience is in organic, permaculture and sustainable farm practices, nourishing soil structures and local food networks.

Pocket City Farms opened their first urban farm in June 2016 on a former bowling club in Camperdown, part of Sydney’s unner west. With a 1200m2 market garden it’s now a community hub where locals can come and visit, volunteer, take our composting and food forest care programs, attend a range of workshops, events, and yoga classes.

Michael co-founded Pocket City Farms with general manager Emma Bowen and board member Karen Erdos.
