what is the urban agriculture forum

The 3rd National Urban Agriculture Forum (UAF) is a bi-annual event that is held on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, in Melbourne, over the 9th and 10th October 2020.

The forum attracts over 200 policy makers, practitioners, innovators and institutions in the urban agriculture sector. You’re invited to join us as we explore the growing urban agriculture movement in Australia and beyond and the positive impacts it has on our community’s health and wellbeing.

October 2020 will be another monumental experience. Taking place at William Angliss Institute, the agenda will feature a number of innovative Australian and International urban agricultural practices including groundbreaking new research in the field.

The confirmed international keynote speaker, Chris Blythe from Social Farms and Gardens, will delve into the subject of Care Farming in the UK. 2020 will see the first inaugural National Urban Agriculture month across October (1st to 31st inclusive) spring into action. The month long celebration will feature garden tours, events and workshops highlighting the movement in Australia, with a number of key partners already on board. Read more about it here.
