Who can get involved?
Urban Agriculture Month (UAM) is run by Sustain, a think and do network connecting passionate people like you to build tangible change. Anyone involved in urban agriculture is welcome to organise an event, whether individually or as an group, organisation or business. Just as diversity enriches our ecosystem, UAM is a time to celebrate our diverse urban agriculture community. If you are planning an event to promote a business, service or product, we ask that your event gives back to the community in some way (eg. providing an educational experience).
The intensive burst of activity UAM generates will throw the spotlight on the innovative, diverse, and ever-evolving urban agriculture movement in Australia. Alongside #UrbanAgricultureForum, UAM will center around the theme: ‘Care Farming and Gardening in the Climate Emergency’. This is all about urban agriculture as a tool for building resilience in the face of crisis, for people, the planet, and plants.
Participating in the month not only contributes to this wider conversation, but it will also bring media attention, local supporters, and new participants to your community. UAM aims to strengthen our existing networks and grow powerful connections, increasing support to those who need it through sharing and connecting.
