This book, by a leading expert in urban agriculture, offers a genuine solution to today’s global food crisis. By contributing more to feeding themselves, cities can allow breathing space for the rural sector to convert to more organic sustainable approaches. Drawing on both his academic research and teaching, and 15 years’ experience as a practicing urban farmer, the author brings a unique interdisciplinary approach to this key global issue, creating a dialogue between the physical and social sciences.
