Urban Agriculture Month 2023

Growing Edible Towns and Cities

An annual month-long celebration of urban agriculture in Australia, Urban Agriculture Month most recently took place in November 2022. With 220 events across all the states and territories, including workshops, open gardens, talks, upskilling sessions and hands-on learning experiences, we brought people and their communities together to connect, share and learn. Urban Agriculture Month is happening again in November 2023. We're growing a sustainable edible food movement, and everyone's invited.

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.

This is powerful & important work.
