We are very excited to announce the Australian touring dates of our Keynote Speakers Henk De Zeuw and Debra Solomon as they head to Bendigo, Adelaide and Sydney in the days following the Melbourne Urban Agriculture Forum.
Adelaide has a rich edible history that has sustained thousands of generations. It is home to ongoing cultural practices of Aboriginal peoples, large multilcultural market garden businesses, smaller community and school gardens, backyard, frontyard and verge plantings.
How can we make Adelaide more edible? How can we transform our urban areas to be greener, cooler and tastier?
Join us to hear from two international speakers on growing food in cities.
Building sustainable and resilient urban food systems
- Henk de Zeeuw
Erosion, Technology & Concentration Foundation and
International Network of Resource Centres on Urban Agriculture and Food Security
Transforming landscape architecture and public space
- Debra Solomon
Urbaniahoeve (which means 'the city as our farm')
Presentations will be followed by a number of facilitated conversation circles to share ideas to strengthen and expand urban food growing in Adelaide.
This workshop is for anyone who has an interest in making Adelaide more edible. For example urban growers, local and state government (such as planners, policy makers, sustainability officers, people from primary industries and health) businesses, educational organisations, community groups and non-profit organisations.
Come and share the projects you are (or have been) involved with. See what others are doing and how we can work together to make Adelaide more food resilient.
