Building real food and farming networks in northern cities

Join us online to explore the challenges and opportunities of developing sustainable food systems and networks in our Northern cities.

About this event

We’ll hear from four cities in the process of developing urban farming in partnership with the Urban Agriculture Consortium.

If you’re involved in thinking about how food can work in cities to offer an alternative to our current unsustainable food paradigm, this event is for you. We’ll be welcoming urban and peri-urban farmers, planners, food procurement officers and Sustainable Food Places networks to the discussion.

This virtual workshop will use case studies and presentations to:

  • Explain how urban farms can contribute to our food supply and food sovereignty aims, and explore the extent to which urban/peri-urban farms could feed people in cities;
  • Explore how urban farms could attract people to the real farming movement;
  • Discuss urban farming’s vital role in the broader movement for a just and fair real farming and food system;
  • Explore how urban farms can help build links between people living in cities and the rural farms that feed us.
