The 2023 Urban Agriculture Forum:
Feeding the Future, Nourishing Country
National Centre of Indigenous Excellence – Redfern, Sydney NSW (and ONLINE)
Sustain: The Australian Food Network's 4th National Urban Agriculture Forum (UAF), will be held from 17th-19th November this year in conjunction with Community Gardens Australia’s National Gathering, exploring this year's theme of Feeding the Future, Nourishing Country.
We are proud to hold the UAF for the first time on the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. In hosting at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in Redfern (Sydney), we are reminded that Australian cities and towns have always been, and always will be, Country.
How can urban agriculture create more nourishing cities and towns and foster more socially and ecologically just urban environments? The UAF is an opportunity for policy makers, practitioners and innovators to explore these questions, while networking and exchanging knowledge about leading practice in the urban agriculture sector.
We're thrilled to share our lineup of keynote SPEAKERS including Clarence Slockee from Gardening Australia and Brenden Moore, Community Greening Officer at The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, sharing First Nations wisdom and knowledge. Clarence and Brendan will be joined by international speakers Linda Appel Lipsius, CEO of Denver Urban Gardens, Rabekha Siebert, Urban Agriculture Coordinator - City of Dallas and Bjorn Low, Edible Garden City, Singapore, to share the latest updates in the sector internationally.
We are currently seeking presenters! If you would like to submit a proposal, you will find all the information in our Call for Presenters document (PDF). Submissions close on 15th August 2023.
