Climate Ready Regions Webinar: Native Food – Design
June 4, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Climate change is affecting us all. It requires everyone in our community to act – including individuals, businesses, community groups, and all levels of government and to vigilantly work together to strengthen our resilience, and leverage advantages to harness opportunities from the transition economy.
During our planning we never imagined the world that we now face and due to COVID-19 the Inaugural SA Climate Ready Regions Conference was cancelled but the messages for the speakers are just as important. In its place are webinars that provide information from across Australia.
The idea of people understanding the origin and cultural knowledge of native foods and practices of land management that’s thousands of years old is being matched with Urban agriculture and is a growing trend around the world. With rooftop farms such as New York’s Brooklyn Grange supplying produce for the local community. There are city farms in Sydney and the Yerrabingin Indigenous rooftop farm, the 500-square-metre garden created on the rooftop of a office block, smack bang in the middle of Sydney’s Eveleigh industrial park.
