The Urban Agriculture Month is made possible by the generous support of our event partners.
Urban Agriculture Month is an annual Australian national celebration of edible towns, cities and suburbs, organised by the team at Sustain: The Australian Food Network. Together we're growing a movement, and everyone's invited.
Featuring a range of events, from open gardens, guided tours, community swaps and hands-on workshops, to forums, educational events and panel discussions, it's a chance to celebrate the good work happening right across Australia, learn new skills, meet like-minded people and grow connections.
Thanks to the generous contributions of our partners, Urban Agriculture Month is completely free for everyone to enjoy.
We're grateful to our 2022 Urban Agriculture Month sponsors for their support and for helping us grow a sustainable edible movement across Australia.
