Resources for Urban Agriculture Month event hosts
Sustain: the Australian Food Network is excited to co-ordinate Urban Agriculture Month again in November 2023. A little closer to the time we'll update this page with resources for you to use. Until then, please save the date!
We're committed to helping you promote your event and spread the word of the importance and enjoyment of growing food, and to support you with this, we've put together this resources page.
Urban Agriculture Month Explainer
Our Urban Agriculture Month 2022 Explainer is a two-page document that describes what urban agriculture means to the team here at Sustain, and what we're hoping to acheive with this month-long celebration of growing edible food in towns, cities and suburbs. There's also some information about our very first Urban Agriculture Month, which took place in April 2021 and has now grown to become an annual event happening nationwide across Australia.

Urban Agriculture Month 2022 Graphics
We've designed a series of graphics that you can use to promote your own events happening during November, as well as Urban Agriculture Month more broadly.
The two tiles below can be downloaded and shared to promote Urban Agriculture Month on your social networks. Click on the images to open in a new screen; you can click the image and select 'save image as' to save the image to your device.
Urban Agriculture Month Graphic Templates
We have also created a series of editable Urban Agriculture Month graphics for you to use on your social media feeds to promote your own events to your audiences.
These tiles are editable in Canva, a graphic design software tool with free-to-use features (you'll need to create an account to use it). These designs include our Urban Agriculture Month logo, colours and branding, and are formatted ready for you to insert your own event details.
Simply replace the placeholder text with the name of your organisation or group, the title of your event, a short description of your event, and the date, time and location (including your state).
You can add your logo (if you have one) to the top colour bar, in between the 'Urban Agriculture Month' and 'Sustain' logos.
Click the image below or use this link to access the editable Urban Agriculture Month templates via Canva.
Alternatively, if you have you own graphic designs ready to go, you can simply download the official Urban Agriculture Month logo (either the teal colour or white versin, both on a transparent background) as a .png file and add this to your own assets.
