Storytime with Grandma Rosie

Event description

Join Grandma Rosie for Storytime under our beautiful trees and experience the magic of Perth City Farm. Rosie and friends will read a story, lead us in song, share her wisdom and we'll go on an adventure together; to meet the chickens, smell some herbs & flowers or explore this beautiful oasis. Grandma Rosie was one of the founding members of this beautiful place
called Perth City Farm. For 30 years Rosie has been working her magic to create this beautiful haven in the middle of a bustling city.

This is a community event we create together, and a caregiver must be in attendance at all times so please do not drop your children off and leave. Registrations are essential (via this Humanitix platform) as space is limited.

Upcoming sessions:

10 January 9.30 - 10.30 am Storytime for 0-5 YO, by donation

This session is dedicated to Grandad Thom who was a regular contributor to the group but died in December. The session will include books and songs about loss, delivered gently and appropriately for children under 5. Death is a part of life especially on a farm and Thom was very important to our community so our volunteers want to acknowledge this.

24 January 9.30 - 11.30 School Holiday Storytime for 0-5 and 6-10 YO, by donation with $5 minimum per child

Two groups for children 0-5 and 5-10 will run concurrently from 9.30am to 11.30am. Both groups will enjoy waterplay, storytelling, crafts and singing, while exploring this beautiful oasis. Your children will also enjoy a delicious homemade morning tea, lovingly prepared by our team of volunteers.

At Perth City Farm, we are kind to each other, ourselves and the Earth. We welcome and include all; inviting visitors to pause and reconnect with themselves, others, nature and spirit.


Although there is paid City of Perth parking around the area, it can get very busy during standard working hours. The easiest way to get to Perth City Farm is via public transport. We are just down the steps from Claisebrook Train Station, and the Yellow CAT bus stops just out the front.


If you need something sweet to nibble on, or a coffee to get you through the hump day; our on-site 'Luma Cafe' will be open on Wednesday mornings to keep you fed & watered. Remember to bring your keep cup! :)
