The big picture

Urban Agriculture Month is about showing everyday Australians how urban agriculture can feed and nourish our communities.

It’s a chance to shine the spotlight on the diverse urban agriculture movement happening across Australia’s backyards, laneways, schools and community farms and gardens - building support for urban agriculture as a response to the social, nutritional, climate, environmental and cost-of-living challenges of our time.

Through media, conferences and grassroots advocacy, Urban Agriculture Month elevates the case for investment in urban agriculture by our local, State, Territory and Federal governments, at a time when food supply chains and the wellbeing of people are under pressure.

In bringing together seasoned gardeners, curious occasional growers and absolute beginners, Urban Agriculture Month builds the community connections, skill-sharing and collective action we need for a flourishing and fair food system.
