2017 Urban Agriculture Series

Building on the momentum of the 2016 Urban Agriculture Forum, Sustain: The Australian Food Network facilitated a nationwide 'Urban Agriculture Series' in collaboration with the 2017 Sustainable Living Festival (SLF).

By promoting urban agriculture events across Australia, Sustain aims to showcase the range, richness and diversity of urban agriculture practices. In 2016, the nationwide Sustainable Living Festival was in held between February 4-28. The month long Festival attracted over 120,000 visitors, and is the biggest sustainable living festival in the southern hemisphere.

The wide audience reach of both Sustain’s communications networks and those of the Sustainable Living Festival, is a huge opportunity through which to promote your urban agriculture event or organisation.
