About The Urban Agriculture Forum

What is the Urban Agriculture Forum?

The 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. The 3rd National UAF will be held in 2021.

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.

UAF 2021 will be another monumental experience. 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 and Gardening in the UK.
