From the Inside Flap
Farming the City goes into depth about the increasingly important phenomenon of urban farming. The book not only examines food in the city, but also the potential and possibilities for the bottom-up developments taking place in neighbourhoods. The first part consists of twenty short, forceful essays. A number of contributions sum up the chances for newly developing forms of business to create wealth locally. Social advantages are also discussed, nothing creates more neighbourly feeling after all than gardening together. Other contributions analyse small and large scale spatial planning and look into the political and policy possibilities. And finally, new and sustainable technologies are considered.
With 30 project examples: from the transformation of empty spaces in Boston to roof terraces in New York; from the People's Supermarket in London to cultivation in shipping containers in Rotterdam. From education to profitability and sustainable innovation.
