Our School Program

Australian Urban Growers offers sustainability and vertical farming training services to help individuals, schools, businesses and communities learn the skills to grow fresh produce and create green cities.

1. We Deploy Vertical Farms To Inner City Schools

Our company is dedicated to providing schools with the resources they need to teach students about sustainable agriculture. That's why we've developed a unique solution - vertical farms that can be installed right on school grounds. With these farms, students can learn about growing food in an environmentally-friendly way, while also enjoying fresh produce that's grown right on campus. Our program is self-sustaining, as we grow and sell the produce from these farms to fund the ongoing maintenance and continuation of our educational program. Plus, we don't charge schools any additional costs. By providing these resources to schools, we're empowering the next generation with crucial knowledge about how to feed themselves and the world in a sustainable manner.

2. We Feed Canteens, Classes and Community

Our vertical farms allow us to grow sustainable produce such as lettuce, rocket, herbs, tomatoes and more. These crops can be bought from us for use in tuckshops or in cooking classes, providing students with fresh and nutritious ingredients for their meals. By growing our own produce, we can ensure it is sustainable, reducing our impact on the environment. Additionally, since our farms are vertically stacked, we can grow more food using less space compared to traditional farming methods. This allows us to provide a steady supply of healthy produce throughout the year. With our sustainable and efficient farming practices, we are not only promoting healthy eating but also helping to reduce our carbon footprint and improve the well-being of the planet.

3. We Facilitate Practical Learning and Pathways

We're thrilled to be at the forefront of vertical farming and excited to inspire the next generation of sustainable agriculture leaders! We empower students through enriching programs including interactive lessons, guided tours, and school clubs. Our dedication to sustainable farming not only advances the future of agriculture but also encourages young people to pursue impactful careers in this innovative field. We're committed to utilizing eco-friendly techniques to grow quality crops and pave the way for future generations. We feel honored to provide a sustainable platform for students and the community alike, fostering both education and engagement in the important work of sustainable agriculture.

4. We Orient Education To Sustainable Development

We strive to support schools in their efforts to prepare students for careers in sustainable industries. Our focus is on streamlining access to knowledge, resources, and industry connections, so that educators can provide students with the best possible learning experience. By working together with schools, we are able to identify the skills and qualifications that students need to be successful in sustainable industries. This information allows us to create targeted resources and professional development opportunities for teachers, as well as providing students with access to meaningful internships and mentorships. Ultimately, we believe that by helping schools to foster the next generation of sustainable industry professionals, we can help to build a better future for all.

Vertical Farming

Why We're Kickstarting The Sector

Establishing a thriving vertical farming sector is vital for a sustainable future. Vertical farming maximizes productivity in urban areas while reducing reliance on external food sources and minimizing the carbon footprint. It offers year-round cultivation, consistent fresh and nutritious crops, and promotes water conservation while minimizing chemical use and soil erosion. Embracing vertical farming addresses challenges like limited space, resource efficiency, climate resilience, and local food security, fostering a sustainable and nourishing world.

Bringing Food Back to the City:

Currently, a substantial portion of Brisbane’s food is produced in rural areas outside the city limits. While this setup has served us well, there is a growing movement to bring food production closer to where it is consumed. By embracing innovative solutions like vertical farming, rooftop gardens, and community-based initiatives, we can create a more localised and resilient food network right here in our city.

The Benefits of Localized Food Production:

Bringing food back into the city has numerous benefits for Brisbane and its residents. Firstly, it significantly reduces the carbon footprint associated with long-distance transportation. By sourcing food locally, we minimise the environmental impact and contribute to a cleaner, greener Brisbane.

Secondly, localised food production fosters a stronger sense of community and connection. When we know where our food comes from, we can establish relationships with local farmers, support regional economies, and promote a healthier, more sustainable food culture.

Lastly, bringing food closer to the city ensures that we have access to fresh, nutritious produce year-round. By utilizing innovative urban farming techniques, we can cultivate a diverse range of fruits, vegetables, and herbs right within our city’s limits. This not only guarantees freshness but also enhances food security and reduces our dependence on external food sources.

Our Commitment:

At Australian Urban Growers, we are actively working towards reducing food miles and bringing food production back to Brisbane. Through our vertical farming initiatives, community partnerships, and educational programs, we are striving to create a more sustainable, resilient, and self-sufficient food system. Join us in this endeavour as we champion local farming, reduce our carbon footprint, and enjoy the benefits of farm-fresh goodness right here in our beautiful city.

Pioneering Sustainability: Embracing Vertical Farming to Showcase Brisbane's Olympic Legacy

As Brisbane prepares to host the 2032 Olympic Games, embracing vertical farming becomes a crucial step towards establishing the city as a hallmark of sustainability. While this innovative agricultural practice has gained traction globally, it has yet to take hold in Brisbane. With limited land availability and the need for sustainable food production, the time is ripe for Brisbane to seize the opportunity presented by vertical farming. By integrating vertical farms within the city, Brisbane can reduce its reliance on external food sources, minimize the environmental impact of long-distance transportation, and enhance food security. The 2032 Olympics provide the perfect stage for Brisbane to showcase its commitment to sustainability through cutting-edge practices like vertical farming. By harnessing this transformative technique, Brisbane can maximize the efficient use of space, provide fresh and nutritious produce year-round, and set a remarkable example for future cities. Let us unleash the potential of vertical farming in Brisbane, creating a legacy of sustainability that reverberates far beyond the Olympic Games.
