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?
