The 4th National Urban Agriculture Forum (UAF), to be held from 17-19 November 2023, in conjunction with Community Gardens Australia’s National Gathering, explores the theme of nourishing cities.
We are proud to hold the UAF for the first time on the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. In hosting at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in Redfern (Sydney), we are reminded that Australian cities and towns have always been, and always will be, Country.
Redfern’s rich legacy as a centre of Aboriginal intellectual culture, political leadership and activism provides a fertile ground for exploring how urban agriculture can honour Country and support Indigenous self-determination.
How can urban agriculture create more nourishing cities and towns and foster more socially and ecologically just urban environments? The Urban Agriculture Forum is an opportunity for policymakers, practitioners and innovators to explore these questions while networking and exchanging knowledge about leading practices in the urban agriculture sector.
Join us as we explore the growing urban agriculture movement in Australia and beyond, and the positive changes it is creating for community health, wellbeing and sense of belonging.
The two conference days are Friday 17th November and Saturday 18th November, with talks, presentations and workshops planned across both days. Further information will be available on our website uaf.org.au as speakers are confirmed.
On Sunday 19th November we plan to offer tours to community gardens, urban farms on the peri-urban fringe and other edible landscapes. Tickets for these tours will be available to book shortly. By following Sustain’s Humanitix page you will automatically be notified when these tickets are released.
