The 2023 Urban Agriculture Month:
Growing Edible Towns, Cities and Suburb
A celebration co-ordinated by Sustain: The Australian Food Network Events celebrating and raising awareness of Australia's urban agricultural movement
Sustain: The Australian Food Network's third national Urban Agriculture Month is happening from 1st - 30th November 2023, and everyone is invited! Urban Agriculture Month is a month-long celebration of all things urban agriculture, featuring a range of exciting events happening right across Australia. From open gardens, workshops, guided tours, communal feasts and other hands-on learning experiences, we bring people together to connect, share and learn. Our third national Urban Agriculture Month will be happening in November 2023. There will be plenty of ways you can get involved: from attending events to running your own, and sharing our program on socials and in real life with your community. We'll share details about how you can join in a little later in the year. In the meantime, take a look at our map to see what happened last November.

Host your own event
Hosting your own event is a great way to promote urban agriculture in your community, connect with like-minded people, form new collaborations, grow together...and have fun! For example you could:
- Host a meal using local produce;
- Organise a forum with local (or national) experts;
- Hold a workshop (composting, keeping chickens, growing food);
- Organise a local community food swap;
- Host an online Q&A, interview or workshop;
- Lead a community garden fundraising event;
- Something else entirely - all ideas are welcome!
Your event can be as big or small as you choose. It can be something you plan from scratch, or you can share an event that you've already organised. It can be a one-off event, or part of a series. It can be free for participants, or there can be an entry fee. You can host a single event, or many! We value diversity and want to celebrate urban agriculture in all its forms.
