Urban Agriculture Month November 2022

November 1st to 30th 2022

Urban Agriculture Month 2022

Growing Edible Towns and Cities

A month-long celebration of urban agriculture in Australia, Urban Agriculture Month is happening in November 2022. With over 100 events planned across all the states and territories, including workshops, open gardens, talks, upskilling sessions and hands-on learning experiences, we're bringing people and their communities together to connect, share and learn. We're growing a sustainable edible food movement, and everyone's invited.

Join us in celebrating Urban Agriculture Month 2022


The Australian Food Network

Sustain is a “think and do” network, specialising in designing and building sustainable and healthy food systems. We work with governments, councils, and community leaders to help map local food systems, and develop evidence-based and achievable policies and programs. We sow the seeds of change with events, policy work, practice & thought leadership, capacity building, and collective action. We give people, councils, and organisations the tools they need to help them become empowered food citizens, supporting healthy communities, people and ecosystems.
