Lead, asbestos and arsenic has been detected during Brisbane City Council soil testing at Northey Street City Farm.

The popular inner-north organic farm was given the go ahead to reopen on Friday afternoon, six weeks after it was closed, but only after it implements a number of measures to minimise health risks.

But farming team manager Dick Copeman said it remained unclear whether the findings would enable the two hectare city farm to retain its organic certification.

“We notified the organic certifier when the original issue arose, if we want to maintain that status we will have to come up with a management plan,” he said.
