And it's only just the beginning
“Urban Agriculture Australia is a dynamic and resourceful collaboration between community based urban food farming groups, environmental groups and local businesses in the Canberra bio-region.
Urban Agriculture Australia is an initiative of Canberra City Farm and a collaboration of local organisations and businesses – find out more about the collaborators.
Our mission is to inform and educate our community about urban agriculture’s potential and how we can have a sustainable lifestyle, so that the community has control of the most essential items of daily life – secure and healthy food and shelter.
The reason urban agriculture is so important, is that more and more of our society are living in urban areas that have reduced access to adequate and nutritious food.
