Description

Urban agriculture appears to offer a response to people's new expectations in terms of quality of life, with desire to be able to produce part of their food in a town centre. Here and there, metropolitan regions are seeing the emergence of vegetable gardens, herb plots, mushroom allotments and vineyards. The farming world is still consi­dering this type of activity purely under the angle of competition. But couldn't it be more akin to a source of opportunity, a new way of innovating, contributing added value services to city-dwellers and highlighting the value of farm produce?
