Melbourne locals will soon be able to explore a rooftop farm, overlooking the Yarra River in the Docklands.

The development, Skyfarm, is a collaboration between Melbourne-based nature regeneration and protection group Odonata, urban farm company Biofilta, and The Sustainable Landscape Company.

Skyfarm is among a range of initiatives working towards making Melbourne a greener city. Photo supplied.

Visitors will be able to visit the working farm and orchard and enjoy contemporary, sustainable dining options.

Experts behind this project will be on hand at the farm to educate visitors about sustainable living and how to protect the environment.

Frasers Property Australia last year announced its plans to build the ‘most sustainable shopping centre in the world’, which aims to build a structure from non-toxic and recycled materials. The centre aims to produce zero waste and grow fruit and veg on 20% of the site.
