Urban agriculture strategy

Yarra City Council’s first Urban Agriculture Strategy was adopted in 2014 to help create new opportunities for different kinds of urban agriculture activities.

The strategy was believed to be the first of its kind initiated by a local government in Australia. We now have an updated Urban Agriculture strategy for 2019-2023.
