It's been a tumultuous time for the folks involved with urban ag in Yarra, their funding was being cut and their pioneering urban ag facilitator role was under threat.
Thankfully due to a large surge of support, the local community was able to persuade Council to reconsider and the role has been confirmed for a short term.
Your help is now needed to further shape Yarra Council's efforts in this area. Take a few minutes to influence the future direction of our city.
Yarra has just released its draft Urban Agriculture strategy for community consultation. You can read it here. (Don't be put off by the number of pages - they used a big font and there's lots of empty space)
They need people to answer 7 feedback questions which you can do here.
Judging them on their efforts to drop the role mentioned above, it would seem a good idea to make sure what they're planning is on the mark.
Go on, find 15 minutes. The offer closes on Friday 26th September.
