Cathie Hale has big plans for a property on Bant Street, with the Wholefood Co-op manager planning to transform it into a organic market garden.
Ms Hale and her family acquired the 1.4 hectare land only a few months ago and invited the interested members of the community to check out the land and her plans for it on Sunday, March 22.
"It'll be a market garden, so we'll be selling organic vegetables and then selling the produce at the farmers' markets when they start up again and at the Wholefood Co-Op," she said.
"I found in the past few years that we don't have enough local growers in this region who are dedicated growers.
"There's a lot of backyard growers, but we really need a good, steady supply of produce coming through the doors."
The market garden will be called Three Veg Farm and planning has already begun.
Ms Hale is hoping to have infrastructure including plumbing, electricity, water tanks, storage sheds and greenhouses set up over the next few months.

She's then hoping to plant her first crop shortly afterwards, which would take six to eight weeks to grow.
"It'll be a limited harvest at first, vegetables that can cope with our harsh winters," she said.
"Things like rocket, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. Coriander and parsley grows well in cold climate too, but I'll have to hold out for tomatoes, zucchinis, capsicum for the warmer months."
Ms Hale said she plans to run the market garden alongside her husband and son.
"We live close by and we've walked through that block for 20 years and we've always loved it," she said.
"There's a beautiful creek that runs through the property too.
"There's native bushland that will help the market garden because if we bring all the flowering native shrubs up to the garden, it brings in all the birds to help with the insects that might eat the vegetables.
"There's no chemicals and it's about restoring that land to functionality because it's full of weeds at the moment.
"So the reason for my open day was to talk through all that with whoever was interested."
