Description

Food in our own backyard - exploring the past, present, and future for urban food production.

Australian suburbs have been a site of food production for over one hundred years. This seminar explores the past, present and future or urban food production.
Who are the suburban harvesters?
What do these histories tell us about the cultures and values of suburban Australia?
In an era of rapid social, environmental and economic change, how can the suburban harvest contribute to a vision of a more just and sustainable urban food system?
