Stories of Urban Agriculture

Michael Ableman, farmer, writer and change maker is returning to Adelaide in February 2018.


His most recent book is Street Farm - growing food, jobs and hope on the urban frontier which chronicles the story of Sole Food Street farms in Vancouver. He currently divides his time between his home base Foxglove Farm and the Center For Arts, Ecology, and Agriculture on Saltspring Island CA, and urban farming social enterprises in nearby cities.
At this evening event you will hear Michael's story of Sole Food Street farms in Vancouver and be inspired by a showcase ofAdelaide initiatives and the people behind them.
Ableman has a finely honed sensibility—he gardens society, grows well-being, weeds out despair, and sows hope.”
 Paul Hawken, author of Drawdown + Blessed Unrest
