This one-day workshop will bring together leading practitioners and policy-makers in urban agriculture and urban food systems from across Melbourne. As a feature event in the 3rd national Urban Agriculture Month, coordinated by Sustain, this event will contribute to the growing momentum for the transition to sustainable and resilient food systems that enable flourishing human and ecological communities.
The workshop will feature keynote presentations from international guests Rabekha Siebert (Urban Agriculture Manager, City of Dallas, Texas) and Linda Lipsius, CEO of Denver Urban Gardens (Denver, Colorado).
The event will appeal to practitioners and policy makers in local and state government as well as representatives of the development industry, planning and landscape architect consultancies. It will showcase leading initiatives from across the city and strengthen the case for a coordinated and well-resourced approach to this sector from the state government, building on Sustain’s Growing Edible Cities and Towns report presented at the same venue in October 2022, as part of the 2nd national Urban Agriculture Month.
