Australia is one of the world’s most urbanised nations. The current urban food supply system — how Australia’s cities are fed — adversely impacts the health of urban populations and the environmental health of the land on which food is produced. This article argues for an extensive national urban agriculture scheme to ameliorate these adverse impacts, and explores the role of planning law in the regulation of food distribution and land use for food production.
