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.
